Hormonal induction of lactation in cows. 2. Effect on health and composition of milk

Hormonal induction of lactation in cows. 2. Effect on health and composition of milk

Kerala Journal of Veterinary Science 10(2): 240-245

11 infertile cows and heifers were induced to lactate by treatment with natural or synthetic oestrogens and progesterone twice daily for 7 days or synthetic oestrogen and progesterone on alternate days over a 14-day period. The dosage was 0.1 mg oestrogen and 0.25 mg progesterone/kg body weight. Six females (2 cows + 4 heifers) came into oestrus 42-57 days after the onset of lactation. Four females (1 cow + 3 heifers) were inseminated at the 2nd oestrus, and all conceived.
