Effects of supplemental progesterone after artificial insemination on expression of interferon-stimulated genes and fertility in dairy cows.

Abstract

The objectives of the current study were to evaluate the effects of supplemental progesterone after artificial insemination (AI) on expression of IFN-stimulated genes (ISG) in blood leukocytes and fertility in lactating dairy cows. Weekly cohorts of Holstein cows were blocked by parity (575 primiparous and 923 multiparous) and method of insemination (timed… (More)
