Pregnancy rate to the Ovsynch protocol can be improved if cows are presynchronized (i.e., two PGF(2alpha) injections given 14 days apart and the second injection of PGF(2alpha) given 12 days prior to the first GnRH of the Ovsynch program) so that a greater proportion of cows during the Ovsynch protocol ovulate to the first GnRH injection and have a CL at PGF(2alpha) injection. Pregnancy rates were normal in anestrous cows (39.6%) if they ovulated to both injections of GnRH. Estradiol cypionate… CONTINUE READING
