Meat & Livestock Australia - Livestock Production R&D Project

Chemical sterilisation as an alternative to spaying of heifers

Indicative Funding
$65,495 over 4 years
Summary
Beef cattle that are excess to breeding requirements are routinely sterilised surgically without the use of pain relief or anaesthesia. Mortalities are not uncommon. The aim of this project is to determine if intraovarian administration of a zinc based compound or calcium chloride can sterilise heifers. If treatment is successful it could provide an alternative method of sterilisation that could provide better welfare outcomes and improve productivity.

Meat & Livestock Australia - Livestock Production R&D Project

Improving fertility to AI in Bos indicus cattle

Indicative Funding
$32,772 over 4 years
Summary
Variable and often low fertility to Artificial Insemination (AI) is one factor that limits the use of AI in extensively managed beef herds where Bos indicus genotypes predominate. Higher fertility in Bos taurus cows has been associated with higher concentrations of progesterone before artificial insemination and a greater number of astral follicles 3 or more mm in diameter within the ovaries of cows. This study aims to investigate whether manipulating concentration of progesterone before AI and whether cows with greater numbers of astral follicles 3 or more millimetres in size within their ovaries before AI alters fertility to AI.
