5. Faecal glucocorticoid metabolites and body temperature in Australian merino ewes (Ovis aries) during summer artificial insemination (AI) program. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Faecal glucocorticoid metabolites and body temperature in Australian merino ewes (Ovis aries) during summer artificial insemination (AI) program. Reproductive wastage is a key issue for sheep producers, both regionally and globally. The reproductive output of farm animals can be influenced by physiological and environmental factors. Rapid and reliable quantification of physiological stress can provide a useful tool for designing and testing on-farm management interventions to improve farm (...) animal welfare and productivity. In this study, we quantified physiological stress non-invasively using faecal glucocorticoid metabolites-FGMs analysis and body temperature measurements of 15 superovulated donor merino ewes (Ovis aries) during participation in artificial insemination (AI) program conducted during 2015/2016 Australian summer. We hypothesized that low percentage transferable embryos in donor merino ewes will be associated positively with higher body temperature and/or higher FGMs

19. Equine chorionic gonadotropin increases fertility of grazing dairy cows that receive fixed-time artificial insemination in the early but not later postpartum period. (Abstract)

Equine chorionic gonadotropin increases fertility of grazing dairy cows that receive fixed-time artificial insemination in the early but not later postpartum period. This study evaluated effects of equine chorionic gonadotropin (eCG) on fertility of 679 crossbred (Bos taurus x Bos indicus) lactating grazing cows synchronized for fixed-time AI (FTAI). At a random day of the estrous cycle cows received an intravaginal progesterone (P4) implant, 2 mg estradiol benzoate (EB) and 100 μg gonadorelin (...) (D0-AM). On D7-AM, cows received 0.5 mg sodium cloprostenol and were randomly assigned into two treatments: eCG (n = 340; 400 IU eCG on D7), or Control (n = 339; no eCG). On D8-PM, P4 implants were removed and cows received 0.5 mg sodium cloprostenol and 1 mg EB. Insemination was performed on D10-AM. Pregnancy was diagnosed 30 and 60 d after AI. Treatment with eCG tended to increase pregnancy per AI (P/AI) compared to Control at 30 (37.8 vs. 30.2%; P = 0.06) and 60 (31.9 vs. 25.1%; P = 0.08) d
