 Influence of GnRH and Estradiol on Estrus and Luteal Activity of Anestrous Postpartum Beef Cows
  First postpartum estrus in beef cows is usually preceded by a transient increase in plasma progesterone and is followed by a normal luteal phase (Perry et al., 1991; Looper et al, 2003).
The incidence of estrus during 7 to 20d and luteal activity during d 11 to 20 after treatment with estradiol or GnRH is summarized in Table 1.

 Electronic estrus detector (US4895165)
An electronic estrus detector that may be affixed to the back of a cow comprises a tapeswitch connected to a counter for storage and display of number of mounts by another cow.
When a cow mounts another cow equipped with the estrus detector, the impact of the mounting cow upon the monitored cow closes the tapeswitch and increments the counter, such that the contents of the counter indicate the estrus condition of the monitored cow.
In a second embodiment, a modified electronic estrus detector indicates estrus condition based upon satisfaction of a mount-second index.

 Relationship of Sow Nutrition and Post-weaning Return to Estrus
On commercial swine breeding farms, it is expected that a large percentage of sows exhibit a fertile estrus within 3 to 8 days after weaning.
Delayed return to estrus has a major negative impact on breeding herd efficiency by disruption of breeding schedules, increasing "non-productive sow days," reducing pigs produced per sow per year, and perhaps causing premature culling of sows with good genetic potential for milk production and heavy litter weights.
Of special importance for rapid post-weaning return to estrus is adequate energy and protein (amino acids) density of the sow diet.

  The Microinjection Workshop   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Estrus - coloration of the tissues is less intensely pink, with striations visible on the dorsal and ventral vaginal lips with pronounced swelling.
However, the synchronization of estrus cycle by several individuals that are group housed may cause considerable variation in the numbers obtained at any given time, as the mean duration of the estrus cycle for most murine strains is 4 to 5 days.
It should be noted that mice housed together for some time will synchronize their estrus cycles to the dominant female in the cage, and that 'clustering' of nearby cages with respect to estrus cycles can also be observed.

  Estrus - Definition, explanation
Estrus (also spelled œstrus) or heat in female placental mammals eutherians is the period of greatest female sexual responsiveness usually coinciding with ovulation.
The period of estrus in the female is preceded by an increase in estrogen (also spelled œstrogen).
Estrus is one of the phases of the estrus cycle and preceeded by proestrus and followed by metestrus and diestrus.

 Hormonal Control of Estrus: Introduction - The Merck Veterinary Manual
Estrus may also be synchronized in cycling or anestrous does and ewes by administration of progestagens; impregnated vaginal pessaries have been the most widely used agents for control of ovulation but are not currently available for clinical use in the USA.
Estrus may also be synchronized by feeding altrenogest (15-20 mg, PO, sid for 14-18 days) or by using bovine norgestomet implants (one implant followed by addition of a second implant 9 days later) removed 19 days after initiation of treatment; neither treatment is currently approved in the USA for swine.
Estrus is seen in 2-9 mo (typically 5-6 mo); fertility is not affected.

Animals should be observed for signs of behavioral estrus each day of the feeding period.
Keep in mind that animals exhibiting estrus during the feeding period have not consumed adequate levels of MGA on a daily basis.
The MGA Select system, which is suggested for use in large groups of cows (100 head or more), is useful for maximizing estrus response and reproductive performance in beef cows.

 Monitoring Estrus for Frozen Semen Use
If you have a mare who you are sure is just entering estrus, it is safe to wait until about day three of the cycle before a veterinarian is needed to evaluate her state.
This means that it is not a guaranteed method of inducing timely estrus, as if the mare is producing what in effect becomes a mid-cycle ovulation, it will throw her natural cyclical activity into an erratic state.
Where the problems arise, are in the mares that do not respond to the hormone use as anticipated, most commonly as a result of the hormones being administered at the wrong point in her cycle (especially PGF2α), or the presence of a large mid-cycle follicle.

 Beef Cattle Production: Synchronizing Estrus In Beef Cattle (Nov-14-01)
The estrus that occurs immediately after MGA feeding subfertile and females should not be bred on this estrus.
To assure satisfactory synchronization of estrus, an injection of prostaglandin must be given to all females one day before the removal of the vaginal insert.
A new method for synchronizing estrus in mature beef cows (not for heifers) is to administer a GnRH injection followed one week later by an injection of prostaglandin (Figure 7).

 Methods for Estrus Control
Perhaps the simplest procedure for regulating estrus is the introduction of a mature ram into a flock of acyclic ewes just before onset of their normal breeding season or exposure of near pubertal gilts to a boar.
Successful induction of estrus in some animals has also been reported soon after placing bulls with groups of postpartum cows or apparently acyclic heifers, but the effectiveness of this treatment is still questionable.
The occurrence of estrus can be regulated by giving progesterone or some other progestagen compounds with similar biological activity for extended periods to cycling females.

Aids in estrus detection that are valuable adjuncts to the heat-detection program include chalk marks on the tailhead, chemically or electronically activated devices attached to the tailhead of the cow that reveal when other cows have mounted, and a vaginal probe that measures the electrical conductivity of the vaginal mucus.
Estrus is evidenced by the presence of a palpable follicle, an absent or regressed CL, and firm uterine tone.
Breeding is done either on signs of estrus, or heifers are bred once at 60 hr and lactating cows are bred once at 72 hr after prostaglandin injection.

 Estrus in Swine   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Understanding and managing estrus in swine is important because estrus may be thought of as the starting point of the swine herd life cycle.
Knowing when estrus will occur, detecting it, and inseminating the female 12-26 hours after onset of standing heat (estrus) so that the sperm are deposited before ovulation will ensure high conception rates and low repeat breeders.
Estrus detection can be improved by observing sow behavior while the boar is given direct contact with the sow.

 Timing and Frequency of Mating, Duration of Estrus
Firstly, the duration of estrus was inversely related to the weaning-to-estrous interval.
In other words, sows that exhibit estrus within a short time period after weaning are sexually receptive for longer periods of times than their counterparts which have extended weaning-to-estrous intervals.
Secondly, although the length of estrus varied among animals, ovulation consistently occurred at 71% of the duration of estrous.

 Controlling Estrus and Ovulation
Estrus induction averaged 66% and was not different between treatments.
In fertile sows that showed estrus within the week after weaning and were mated, the lower farrowing rate of the OvuGel-96 treated sows was attributed to the interval from last insemination to ovulation being less than optimal (-28 hours) compared to controls (-24 hours).
The results of these two studies indicate that when OvuGel is given to fertile sows, estrus and ovulation intervals are shortened and farrowing rates and litter sizes are similar to AI based on estrus.

 Estrus Induction In Dogs: Approaches, Protocols and Applications
Most are probably not appropriate for application in healthy, normally cycling bitches, despite interest in shortening and synchronizing cycles for purposes of accommodating owners schedules, the availability of stud dogs, or the shipments of chilled or frozen semen, or for purposes of increasing the number, frequency or size of litters in such animals.
Throughout most of the 5 to 20 or more days of proestrus there is a progressive increase in circulating estradiol from a cohort of rapidly developing ovarian follicles, and a progressive decline in LH and FSH concentrations as a result of the inhibitory effects of estradiol and inhibin form the ovaries on pituitary gondadotropin secretion.
Estrus induction protocols are sufficiently variable in results that they are probably not appropriate to electively terminate anestrus in normal cycling dogs because a failure is likely to cause a cycle interruption with unknown consequences and a delay in an otherwise normal ovarian cycle.
