The length of the breeding period can be decreased through estrous synchronization. This enables the producer to reduce the length of the resulting lambing period allowing for more efficient use of labor and facilities during lambing. Past synchronization trials at this station have found intramuscular injections of 10 or 15 mg PGF to be effective in synchronizing estrus during the normal breeding season. This study evaluates 5 or 10 mg PGF for relative effectiveness for estrous synchronization.
