Abstract

The objective of this study was to investigate how follicular dynamics are affected by changing the initial injection times of PGF2 alpha and GnRH in the Cosynch protocol in Montofon cattle that have been administered presynchronization. Initially, all cattle whose corpus luteum was identified were administered an injection of PGF2 alpha. Six days after estrus was identified, the Cosynch protocol was started. In keeping with this, Group I (GI; n=9) was administered GnRH on day 0 and PGF2 alpha 7 days later. Fifty-six h later, artificial insemination was performed and GnRH was injected. In the second group of cows (GII; n=10), PGF2 alpha was administered in the Cosynch protocol 8 days after the first GnRH injection. Fifty-six h later, artificial insemination was performed and GnRH was injected. Development of the follicle and the corpus luteum was monitored each day with ultrasonography. On days 6, 7 and 8 of the procedure, a statistically significant difference in the follicle diameters was identified between the groups (P<0.05). No significant difference between the groups was identified in the dominant follicle diameter during artificial insemination (P>0.05). In conclusion, we determined that for cattle administered the Cosynch protocol on the 6th day of the sexual cycle, extending the application time of PGF2 alpha by one day in did not affect the size of the Graafian follicle.
