Abstract:
The artificial induction of lactation were carried out in 30 animals, divided into three groups with 10 animals in each group. Group I, animals which were in first lactation served as control, not given any treatment. Group II, administered with 17β-estradiol at 0.1 mg/kg body weight and progesterone at 0.25 mg/kg body weight were administered from day 1 to 7 twice daily 12 h apart by subcutaneous route at either side neck region on alternate days. Dexamethasone 20 mg/animal/day and reserpine 5mg/animal/day were administered for 4 days (day 14 to 17) by intramuscular route. The treatment schedule for Group III, from day 1 to 7 was adopted as per group II. Dexametahasone 20 mg/animal/day and metoclopramide 0.1mg/kg bw per day (for day 14 to 17) were administered by intramuscular route. All the animals exhibited estrous symptoms between 30 to 35 from the day of milking and were inseminated when they exhibited first estrous cycle after lactation induction. The percentage of conception rate obtained was 50% (10/10), 60% (6/10), and 60% (6/10) in group I, II and III respectively. The current study in group I, 5 out of 10 (50%) animals were confirmed pregnant. In group II and III conception rate was 60% where in 6 out of 10 animals were confirmed pregnant But the number of inseminations taken for the animal to became pregnant in group I, II and III was similar and it was minimum as ≤ 3.
