OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

ESTRUS/OVULATION SYNCHRONIZATION 1. Artificial insemination has had the biggest impact on genetic improvement in domestic species a. In order for AI to work, need to synchronize estrous cycles in female animals 2. “AM/PM Rule” if you see heat in the AM, breed in the PM. If you see heat in the PM, breed in the AM a. Heat precedes ovulation b. A cow ovulates 28-30 hours after estrus (during metestrus) c. Cow is in heat for 6-10 hours, so best to breed the following morning/night 3. Presynch: early method of estrus synchronization a. 2 shots of prostaglandin (PG) 14 days apart to get all animals in luteal phase a.i. Heat 72 hours after second shot a.ii. Only works if corpus luteum is present b. More cows in heat  more heat you see. SAGS (sexually active groups) of animals will mount each other, make heat detection easy c. Presynch sets all animals up to same point in order to give Ovsynch shot of GnRH c.i. Get cows between day 6-10 of cycle for Ovsynch 4. Ovsynch: later method to detect ovulation a. Give GnRH shot a.i. Cow releases surge of FSH/LH, gets cycle going b. 7 days later, give shot of PG to kill corpus luteum b.i. 48 hours later, shot of GnRH to cause pre-ovulatory LH surge b.ii. 16 hours later, time artificial insemination c. Ovsy
