The influence of oestrous substances on cyclicity and oestrous behaviour in dairy heifers

Nordeus K, Bage R, Gustafsson H, Humblot P, Soderquist L


Conclusions: No evidence of altered oestrous cycle length or duration of oestrus after exposure of females to oestrous substances from other females was found. Expression of oestrus, and maybe also LH secretion, however, seemed influenced by the exposure, with the effect of treatment being suppressive rather than enhancing.
