A study of inducing estrus in virgin dairy goats during anestrous
Numerous studies have focused on developing hormonal treatments to improve follicular development and induce a fertile estrous response in seasonally anestrous
Ovarian aromatase cytochrome P-450 mRNA levels correlate with enzyme activity and serum estradiol levels in anestrous
, pregnant and lactation rats.
The inherently suboptimal functioning of hypothalamo-hypophysial-gonadal axis and consequently low circulating hormones might be responsible for higher incidence of inactive ovaries and true anestrous
Short-term treatment with a controlled internal drug releasing (CIDR) device and FSH to induce fertile estrus and increase prolificacy in anestrous
Low milk yield, poor reproductive performance (seasonal breeding behavior, anestrous
, and longer calving interval) and low growth rate have been reported in buffaloes (Singh and Mehra, 1990; Qureshi et al.
The use of plasma progesterone profiles to predict the reproductive status of anestrous
gilts and sows.
Supplementation of [alpha]-tocopherol in the diet of anestrous
buffaloes steadily increased their serum tocopherol concentration (Kahlon and Singh, 2004); while VE supplementation from 60 days prepartum to 30 days postpartum had a beneficial effect on their plasma atocopherol level (Panda et al.
