Calf removal, either temporary or permanent can increase the number of cows that return to estrus during the breeding season, however, the response can be variable and management of this option can be difficult. Estrus synchronization with progestins can bring cows into heat but will not solve fertility problems. These products may shorten the postpartum interval provided all other management. (v) Breed: Suckled dairy cows have longer postpartum interval than suckled beef cows. (vi) Parity: Primiparous cows have longer intervals to first ovulation than multiparous ones and cows with lower energy balances have longer intervals than those with higher energy balances (Agarwal et al., ).

This is characterized by involution of uterus and resumption of cyclicity. entrapped lochia can serve as a medium for bacteria that enters the uterus during. The BCS change during postpartum period was evaluated in crossbred beef cows suckling calves under extensive conditions in Rio Grande do Sul.

Temporal changes in hepatic gene expression during the periparturient period of primiparous spring-calving beef cows on grazing conditions. J. Dairy Sci. 92(Suppl. 1) Discipline: Lactation management; Keywords: energy intake, roughage, productivity, longevity. Although much has been written about the effect of pre-calving intake on post-calving intake and lactation performance, there are still differences of opinion and variable results, especially as it affects first-calf heifers in comparison to older cows. Normal CL lifespan takes up days of the typical day estrous cycle of a beef cow. The short estrous cycles experienced by cows overcoming postpartum anestrus are characterized by a CL lifespan of 10 days or less. This is thought to be due to high levels of prostaglandin production and metabolism by the uterus during uterine involution. Council equation for beef cattle is recommended for pre- dicting DMI of growing, nonlactating Holstein heifers. DMI (kg/d) = (BW x ( x NEM x NEM2 O. ~/NEM) () where BW = body weight (kg) and NEM is net energy of diet for maintenance (Meal/kg).

Introduction. Age at first service is considered an important issue in beef cow–calf systems since it affects the reproductive performance during the productive lifespan of the cow (Lesmeister et al., ).In Uruguay, most beef cattle grow on native pastures with a high variation of productivity during the year which is also highly dependent on weather by: 1.

A 3-yr study was conducted to determine the effect of supplemental protein source on ADG, feed intake, calf birth BW, and subsequent pregnancy rate in pregnant beef heifers. Crossbred, Angus-based, AI-pregnant heifers (yr 1, n = 38; yr 2, n = 40; and yr 3, n = 36) were stratified by BW ( ± 10 kg) and placed in a Calan Broadbent individual Cited by: 8.

Although the response to flushing is more variable in beef cattle (Lake et al., ; Mulliniks et al., ; Wetterman et al., ), it has been demonstrated that the use of flushing, prior to or during mating, in nutrient restrictive conditions, increased pregnancy rate in primiparous cows with moderate or low body condition score (BCS.

The primary objectives of this study were to investigate incidence of abnormal ovarian cyclicity (AOC) and its type in dairy and beef cows with prolonged postpartum period (>90 days) and in heifers that fail to conceive. A total of 53 animals were included in the study: 17 Friesian crosses, 16 Braford crosses, eight Brangus crosses, and 12 local Kedah-Kelantan (KKX) by: 5.

CHAPTER 3 CASE STUDY: CALVING PRIMIPAROUS BRAFORD HEIFERS AT 2 VERSUS 3 YEARS OF AGE Introduction Beef heifers in Florida traditionally are reared to calve first at 3-y-old.

However, in other parts of the country, many producers breed heifers as yearlings (13to mo-old) to calve at 2-y of age to improve productivity of young heifers. The postpartum period in high-yielding dairy cows creates an enormous drain of nutrients in favor of milk yield which antagonizes the resumption of ovulatory cycles.

Therefore, a study was undertaken to evaluate the association of changes in postpartum serum metabolites with resumption of ovarian cyclicity.
