This experiment was conducted to compare pregnancy rates in postpartum beef cows resulting from fixed-time AI (FTAI) after treatment with controlled internal drug release (CIDR)-based protocols to synchronize estrus. Cows assigned to the Show-Me-Synch (n=167) protocol received a CIDR from d 0 to 14, and prostaglandin F(2α) (PGF(2α)) on d 30. Cows assigned to 7-d CO-Synch+CIDR (n=177) received a CIDR and gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) on d 23. On d 30, CIDRs were removed and PGF(2α) was administered. Blood sampling occurred on d -10 and 0 of treatment to determine estrous cyclicity status (progesterone ≥0.5ng/mL estrous cycling). Treatments were balanced on age, DPP and BCS. Estrous detection was performed using HeatWatch from PGF(2α) to FTAI. Artificial insemination was performed at predetermined fixed times (72h, Show-Me-Synch; 66h, 7-d CO-Synch+CIDR) and all cows were administered GnRH at FTAI. This experiment was conducted over a two year period; no differences were found between years so the data were pooled for further analysis. Pregnancy rate resulting from FTAI did not differ (P>0.10) between technicians or AI sires. Pregnancy rate resulting from FTAI was similar between treatments (P=0.20); however, cows that exhibited estrus prior to FTAI had a higher pregnancy rate (P<0.01) than for those that did not. Pregnancy rate at the end of the breeding period was similar between treatments (P=0.28). In summary, FTAI pregnancy rates were similar among postpartum beef cows following treatment with either a short- or long-term CIDR-based estrous synchronization protocol.
