Mares that had previously been fed to attain body condition scores (BCS) of 7.5 to 8.5 (high) or 3.0 to 3.5 (low) were used to determine the interaction of BCS with the responses to 1) administration of equine somatotropin (eST) daily for 14 d beginning January 20 followed by administration of GnRH analog (GnRHa) daily for 21 d and 2) 4-d treatment with dexamethasone later in the spring when mares in low BCS had begun to ovulate. The majority of mares with high BCS continued to cycle throughout… CONTINUE READING
