A.S. Series 79-16
The effectiveness of once a week flumethasone treatment for the induction and/or timing was studied during the 1975, 1976 and 1977 lambing seasons. Average time to lambing post-treatment was 86.7 ± 8.0 hours for flumethasone-treated ewews and 155.1 ± 7.9 hours for control ewes. Sixty-four percent of the flumenthasone-injected ewes lambed within 72 hours was 49.5 ± 2.1 hours. Based on the results of this experiment, one would expect 95% of the ewes that respond to lamb in a 8.4-hour period starting 45.3 hours after injection.
