Use of two doses of cloprostenol in different intervals for estrus synchronization in hair sheep under tropical conditions
Treatment of 18 cyclic Clun Forest ewes with two i.m. injections of ICI 80,996, given 9 days apart and without reference to stage of the oestrous cycle, synchronized ovulation in all ewes at a mean time interval of 73.1 +/- 1.6 (s.e.m.) h from the second injection. The interval from the LH peak to ovulation was 22.6 +/- 0.7 h and this is comparable to previously reported gigures for a natural oestrus.
