Abstract:

The objective of the present study was to evaluate efficacy of indigenously prepared intravaginal progestagen sponges impregnated with 350 mg of natural progesterone (Avikesil-S®) kept for seven days and prostaglandin at sponge removal Sirohi goats. Percentage of does in estrus was 100 percent. Mean interval from end of treatment and onset of estrus (37.44 ± 3.92 hr), duration of estrus (22.80 ± 2.15 hr) were recorded while estrus induced goats were allowed to bred naturally with sexually active males. Upon pregnancy diagnosis using ultrasonogram on 35 days post mating 70.00 per cent of the animals were pregnant which had followed upto parturition. Further, all pregnant does delivered after gestation period of 149.14±1.26 days. Mean litter size, Single birth, sex ratio (male:female) and birth weight of kids were 1.00 ± 0.00, 100.00 per cent (7/7), 28.57:71.43 per cent and 3.08 ± 0.13 kg, respectively. Avikesil-S® intravaginal for seven days along with Cloprostenol injection on day of sponge removal proved efficient for estrus synchronisation in Jamnapari goats.
