Trials on the use of PGF2 alpha for oestrus synchronisation in sheep. Part 1



Trials on the use of PGF2 alpha for oestrus synchronisation in sheep. Part 1



Zootecnica e Nutrizione Animale 4(4): 231-235



50 Ile-de-France X Apulian Merino ewes in parities 4-6 were allotted to 5 treatment groups given 0 (control), 5, 10, 15 and 20 mg PGF2 alpha resp. Within 4 days of treatment, 72.5% of treated females came into oestrus vs. 20% of controls. The interval to oestrus averaged 2.31 plus or minus 0.19 days in ewes given PGF2 alpha.
