A. K. Smith, S. T. Norman, J. J. Lievaart

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Previous publications have identified many protocols for oestrus synchrony in cattle. With such a variety of possibilities, and with new combinations of hormone treatments being promoted, in order to optimise results, it is of interest to investigate which synchrony options are actually being utilised, to what levels, and what results veterinarians are achieving for the cattle industry. The current study aimed to assess which synchrony protocols are being utilised, how they are applied, what results are anticipated by the respondents, and what drivers affect the selection process.
