Heat Detection and Timing of Insemination for Cattle
Estrus may be synchronized by two doses of prostaglandin, 11—13 days apart in does or 7—9 days apart in ewes. Estrus may also be synchronized in cyclic or anestrous does and ewes by administration of progestagens; impregnated intravaginal sponges medroxyprogesterone or fluorgestone have been the most widely used agents for control of ovulation but are not currently available for clinical use in the USA. In small ruminants, a controlled internal drug release CIDR intravaginal plastic device impregnated with progesterone mg can also be used.
The estrus response is high within 72—84 hr. A portion of a bovine norgestomet ear implant 1. In sheep and goats, the ear implant is placed subcutaneously near the base of the ear or the base of the tail and then removed 7—9 days later. Progestagen treatment is administered for 10—14 days in sheep and for 14—21 days in goats.
Ewes should be joined with rams the day after cessation of treatment; does return to heat on the second or third day after treatment ends. Injection of equine chorionic gonadotropin eCG; — IU at the end of treatment increases synchronization of ovulation or ovulation rate. Alternatively, in does, progestagens may be given for 11 days with eCG and prostaglandin administered on day 9, and fixed-time insemination performed on days 12 and In regimens involving treatments other than prostaglandin alone, fertility may be reduced on the first estrus after treatment in ewes but not in does.
During the nonbreeding season, melatonin implants 18 mg induce fertile estrus 50—70 days after implant insertion. Better results are obtained when melatonin implants are inserted early or during the transitional period. The implant is biodegradable and does not need to be removed. Estrus synchronization may be improved by using an estrus synchronization protocol at the end of implant action.
During the nonbreeding season, a source of gonadotropin is also required. The most common gonadotropin used is eCG, administered at the end of a progestagen treatment or 24 hr before device removal.
The dose of eCG depends on the season, breed, age, and postpartum interval, among other factors. A high eCG dose is characterized by superovulation, low fertility, shortened estrous cycles, pregnancy loss, and problems with multiple lambs or kids. The repetitive use of eCG has produced antibodies against eCG in certain sheep and goats, resulting in modification in the time of ovulation and consequent reduction of fertility when artificial insemination at a fixed time is done.

Induction and Synchronization of Estrus
Determination of the phases of the estrous cycle and induction of estrus heat in experimental animals remains useful, especially in reproductive function research. This review provides a detailed description and discusses extensively the variations observed in different phases of the estrous cycle in laboratory animals using rats and mice as examples. The importance of experimental animals in teaching and research cannot be over-emphasised.

Heat or oestrus is the period when the female will accept the male and mate. There are signs which mark oestrus in all ruminants. Recognising when the female is on heat means you will know when to put her with the male or use artificial insemination.
Hormonal Control of Estrus in Goats and Sheep
Estrus cycle is a rhythmic change that occur in the reproductive system of females starting from one estrus phase to another. The species which exhibit a single estrus cycle are known as monstrous and species which come into estrus twice or more are termed polyestrous animals. Among them some species have estrus cycles in a particular season and defined as seasonal polyestrous. It includes goats, sheep, and horses. On the other hand, cattle undergo estrus throughout the year. The estrus inducers can grossly be divided into two parts, that is, non-hormonal and hormonal. The hormones that are used in estrus induction are estrogen, progesterone, GnRH, prostaglandin, insulin, and anti-prolactin-based treatment.
About Translations. The estrous cycle British spelling, oestrous is the main reproductive cycle of other species females of non-primate vertebrates, for example rats, mice, horses, pig have this form of reproductive cycle. Also do not confuse with "estrus", which is a phase of the cycle. This table allows an automated computer search of the external PubMed database using the listed "Search term" text link.

Estrous: adjective, “The length of the estrous cycle is. _____ days.” Seasonally polyestrus: sheep/goats display multiple estrous cycles in one.
Signs of Heat
Он стоит десять раз по двадцать миллионов. - Увы, - сказал Нуматака, которому уже наскучило играть, - мы оба знаем, что Танкадо этого так не оставит. Подумайте о юридических последствиях. Звонивший выдержал зловещую паузу. - А что, если мистер Танкадо перестанет быть фактором, который следует принимать во внимание. Нуматака чуть не расхохотался, но в голосе звонившего слышалась подозрительная решимость. - Если Танкадо перестанет быть фактором? - вслух размышлял Нуматака.
Мидж, я бы никогда… - начал он с фальшивым смирением. - Знаю, Чед. Мне не нужно напоминать. Через тридцать секунд она уже сидела за его столом и изучала отчет шифровалки. - Видишь? - спросил Бринкерхофф, наклоняясь над ней и показывая цифру. - Это СЦР.
Она встала, но ноги ее не слушались.
