Induction of parturition in dairy cattle with dexamethasone and estradiol benzoate

, : Induction of parturition in dairy cattle with dexamethasone and estradiol benzoate. Journal of Animal Science 40(2): 261-268

Treatment with 20 mg dexamethasone and 8 mg oestradiol benzoate 6-12 days before expected calving shortened gestation length and increased the frequency of retained placenta. No differences were found in dystocia, time for uterine involution, calving interval, or services per conception. Plasma corticoids peaked on the day of parturition in control cows, but were suppressed for 48 h by the injection of dexamethasone.
