Effect of delaying time of AI based on Estrotect patch status on pregnancy rates of beef heifers and nursing beef cows
Four studies were conducted to evaluate the efficacy of a delayed timed AI (TAI) protocol. The objective was to evaluate the use of Estrotect patch status to determine optimum TAI implementation. Experiment 1 was conducted with, 997 cows across 6 locations were administered a 7-d CO-Synch + controlled internal drug release (CIDR) estrous synchronization protocol. The experimental design was a 2 x 2 factorial; factors were patch status at 58 h post PGF2α injection (activated or inactivated) and time interval from PGF2α to TAI (58 or 76 h). Patch status was characterized at 58 h post PGF2α ...
