Abstract:

The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of PGF2α and antibiotic treatment on fertility parameters in dairy cows. After parturition, 24 cows were assigned into four treatment groups which were PGF2α administration on day 8 and 25 postpartum (n=6 each), antibiotic administration on day 1 to 5 postpartum (n=6) and untreated control group (n=6). Monitoring of various fertility parameters was done until next conception in all the groups. Dairy cows treated with PGF2α on day 8 after calving were having numerical difference but there was no statistical difference (P>0.05) in fertility parameters recorded.
