Problems on reproductive efficiency of dairy cows are one of the most important problems for dairy producers. Controlling and synchronizing ovulation has become a routine reproductive management tool for dairy producers.
The steroid-based synchronization of ovulation protocol developed in BIOTEC laboratory has produced a good synchronization of follicular waves and sufficient synchronization of ovulation time, these bring to a good protocol for timed artificial insemination (timed-AI). Field trials showed that this protocol can improve the conception rates in repeat-breeding dairy cows and also overall reproductive efficiencies in dairy cow herds.
With good performance and cost-effectiveness, this protocol has been transferred to and implemented in a number of dairy co-operatives and industries, such as Wangnamyen Dairy Co-operative, Phimai Dairy Co-operative, Namfon Farm and Charoen Pokphand Foods PCL, including over 1,000 smallholder farmers.
