The value of synchronization is in reducing the breeding period. Prostaglandin F2α (PGF) has been demonstrated to effectively synchronize ewes during the normal breeding season. Different methods of synchronizing estrus with PGF have been proposed. The purpose of this trial was to compare the relative effectiveness of singular PGF injection vs. a dual injection of PGF 10 days apart to a control for synchronizing estrus in the ewe during the normal breeding season.
