Objetivo. Evaluar el efecto de los días de lactancia sobre la tasa de gestación con inseminación artificial a tiempo fijo (IATF). Materiales y métodos. Se utilizaron 54 vacas multíparas brahman lactantes; sincronizadas con un protocolo a base de progesterona, benzoato de estradiol, eCG y prostaglandina. Se dividieron en dos grupos: G1: vacas < 110 días de lactancia (n=27); G2: vacas > 110 días de lactancia (n=27). Las vacas fueron inseminadas a las 30 horas de aplicación de la segunda dosis de benzoato. Las variables se analizaron por medio de la prueba de Chi². Resultados. No se presentó efecto (p>0,05) de los tratamientos sobre los porcentajes de preñez con IATF, obteniendo 29.6% y 22.2% para los tratamientos G1 y G2 respectivamente. Conclusiones. Los días de lactancia no tuvieron efecto sobre la tasa de gestación con IATF.

    ABSTRACT: Estrus has been synchronized in cattle with progestogens, prostaglandins (prostaglandin F2 alpha and its analogues), progestogen-estrogen combinations and progestogen-prostaglandin combinations. Progestogens administered for 14 to 20 d are effective in synchronizing estrus; however, fertility at the synchronized estrus is subnormal. Duration of progestogen treatment can be reduced by combining it with an estrogen. Syncro-Mate B is a progestogen-estrogen combination that results in a tightly synchronized estrous response. Prostaglandins can be used in double- or single-injection programs. Fertility of the estrus after prostaglandin treatment is similar to that of controls. Estrus also has been synchronized effectively by combining a 5- to 9-d progestogen treatment with prostaglandin at or near the end of treatment. When prostaglandin is used alone, cattle in the late stages of the luteal phase (d 11 to 15 of the estrous cycle) at the time of prostaglandin injection have a higher estrous response and may be more fertile than those injected with prostaglandin in the early part (d 6 to 9) of the luteal phase. More recently, a 14-d progestogen treatment has been combined with a prostaglandin injection given 16 to 18 d after progestogen withdrawal. This system places cattle in the late luteal phase of the estrous cycle at the time of prostaglandin injection and has resulted in an estrus with greater fertility than that immediately following progestogen treatment.

    ABSTRACT: Our expanding knowledge of the control of follicular wave dynamics during the bovine estrous cycle has resulted in renewed enthusiasm for the prospects of precisely controlling the follicular and luteal dynamics and finely controlling the time of ovulation. Follicular wave development can be controlled mechanically by ultrasound-guided follicle ablation or hormonally by treatments with GnRH or estradiol and progestogen/progesterone in combination. Treatment of cattle with GnRH in combination with prostaglandin F2α (PGF) 7 d later and a second GnRH 48 h after PGF (known as Ovsynch) has resulted in acceptable pregnancy rates after fixed-time AI in lactating dairy cows and in recipients in which embryos were transferred without estrus detection. Alternatively, treatments with estradiol and progestogen/progesterone-releasing devices resulted in synchronous emergence of a new follicular wave and, when a second estradiol treatment was given 24 h after device removal, synchronous ovulation and high pregnancy rates to fixe-time AI. Self-appointed embryo transfer (without estrus detection) using estradiol and progesterone treatments have resulted in pregnancy rates comparable with those obtained with recipients transferred 7 d after estrus. Furthermore, estradiol and progesterone treatments combined with PGF and eCG (given 1 d after the expected time of wave emergence) have resulted in high rates of recipients selected for transfer (84.6%) and an overall pregnancy rate of 48.7% (recipients pregnant/recipients treated). Estradiol and progestogen/progesterone treatments have also been widely used for self-appointed superstimulation protocols with equivalent embryo production to that of donor cows superstimulated using the traditional approach beginning 8 to 12 d after estrus. In summary, exogenous control of luteal and follicular development facilitates the application of assisted reproductive technologies in cattle by offering the possibility of planning the superstimulation of donors and synchronization of recipients at a self-appointed time, without the necessity of estrus detection and without sacrificing results.

    ABSTRACT: A study was conducted to determine whether presence of the calf during suckling inhibition influences the response to estrus synchronization in beef cows. Angus or Hereford cows (n=89) were administered Syncro-Mate-B (SMB), which consisted of a 6-mg norgestomet ear implant (in situ 9 d) in conjunction with 5 mg of estradiol valerate and 3 mg (im) of norgestomet. Cows were allotted by breed, body condition, stage of the estrous cycle, parity and date of parturition to 1 of 3 treatments: 48-h calf removal; ad libitum suckling; or inhibition of suckling with a nose tag for 48 h. Calves were weighed at time of SMB implant removal, 48 h later and at weaning. Cows were mated via AI approximately 12 h after detection of estrus during a 30-d period after implant removal followed by a natural service period of 35 d. At 48 h after implant removal, calf removal and nose tag calves had lost an average of 3.6 and 0.9 kg, respectively, while the suckled calves gained 1.8 kg (P < 0.01). Mean calf weight at weaning did not differ among treatments. Synchronized estrous response (within 5 d of implant removal) was not different among treatments. Pregnancy rate for cows exhibiting a synchronized estrus (5 d AI) for calf removal, nose tag and suckled cows was 76, 48 and 48%, respectively (P>0.10). Treatment did not affect the 30-d AI or overall 65-d pregnancy rate. In this study, there were no differences observed in the percentage of synchronized or pregnant cows following suckling inhibition by either a nose tag or calf removal. Transient reductions of calf body weight during the 48-h calf removal period did occur in both the nose tag and calf removal groups.
