Dr. Pedro L. P. Fontes – Reproductive Physiologist

As we approach the upcoming breeding season, cattle producers are starting to plan their breeding programs for this spring. While estrus synchronization can eliminate the need for estrus detection, identifying females in estrus can help cattle producers further explore the benefits of artificial insemination and embryo transfer. In this article, Dr. Fontes goes over how cattle producers can take advantage of estrus detection aids to target breed females based on estrus expression while performing fixed-time artificial insemination or embryo transfer.
