The use of progestagens in buffalo

High incidence of post partum anoestrus and difficulties in oestrus detection make progestagens a very interesting option for oestrus and ovulation induction in buffaloes.

Both progestesterone impregnated intravaginal devices and norgestomet releasing subcutaneous implants (Crestar) have been used in this species alone or combined with Ovsynch protocol (Singh et al., 1988; Hattab et al., 2000; Bartolomeu et al., 2002; De Rensis et al., 2005).
