Luteolysis is a key event in Ovsynch programs of lactating dairy cows. Studies indicate that as many as 20% of cows treated with a Presynch/Ovsynch program have delayed or incomplete luteolysis using dinoprost tromethamine. Cows must have complete luteolysis to have a chance to become pregnant. Dinoprost tromethamine has a short half-life of approximately 7 to 8min. Cloprostenol sodium is more resistant to endogenous metabolism and is maintained in circulation for a longer time (half-life=3h… CONTINUE READING
