metadata.artigo.dc.description.abstract: Three experiments were designed to evaluate the effect of different circulating progesterone (P4) concentrations during synchronization of ovulation protocol for timed artificial insemination of seasonal anestrous buffalo cows. In the first trial, ovariectomized cows were randomly allocated into one of three groups: using new P4 devices (G-New; n = 8), using devices previously used for 9 days (G-Used1x; n = 8), and using devices previously used for 18 days (G-Used2x; n = 8). The P4 device was maintained for 9 days, and the circulating P4 concentration was measured daily. The circulating P4 concentrations during the P4 device treatment were the lowest for G-Used2x (1.10 ± 0.04 ng/mL), intermediate for G-Used1x (1.52 ± 0.05 ng/mL), and the highest for G-New (2.47 ± 0.07 ng/mL; P = 0.001). In the second trial, 31 anestrous cows had their ovarian follicular dynamics evaluated after receiving the treatments described previously (G-New [n = 10], G-Used1x [n = 11], and G-Used2x [n = 10]). At insertion of the P4 device, cows were administered 2.0 mg of estradiol benzoate. Nine days later, the P4 device was removed and cows were administered 0.53 mg of cloprostenol sodium plus 400 IU of eCG. Forty-eight hours after P4 device removal, 10 μg of buserelin acetate was administered. There were no differences among the groups (G-New vs. G-Used1x vs. G-Used2x) in diameter of the largest follicle at P4 device removal (9.0 ± 0.8 vs. 10.1 ± 0.9 vs. 8.6 ± 0.8 mm; P = 0.35), in interval from P4 device removal to ovulation (77.1 ± 4.5 vs. 76.5 ± 4.7 vs. 74.0 ± 4.4 hours; P = 0.31), or in ovulation rate (80.0% vs. 81.8% vs. 60.0%; P = 0.51). In experiment 3, 350 anestrous cows were randomly assigned into one of the three treatments described previously (G-New, n = 111; G-Used1x, n = 121; G-Used2x, n = 118) and received a timed artificial insemination for 16 hours after buserelin treatment. The 30-day pregnancy rates did not differ among groups (55.9% vs. 55.4% vs. 48.3%; P = 0.39). Thus, the low circulating P4 concentrations released from a used P4 device efficiently control the ovarian follicular growth and had no detrimental effect on the pregnancy rates of the seasonal anestrous buffalo cows.
