In recent years many reports have shown that synthetic glucocorticoids such as dexamethasone (DXMS) and flumethasone will induce parturition in cattle when injected intramuscularly during various stages of gestation.
A study was conducted at South Dakota State University to determine, under field conditions, the effectiveness of DXMS coupled with estradiol on the precision of parturition induction, the incidence of retained placentas and subsequent reproductive performance of beef cows.
