Progesterone For Equines
In equine breeding programs, whether private or commercial and regardless of scope, horse owners and managers often have a need to cause a mare to enter into estrus and ovulate within a specific time period. Reasons for this can include the intent to use frozen semen to impregnate the mare; others often involve a stallion being delivered for a specific (limited) time, or in synchronizing the mare's ovulation with a shipment of semen.
Mares have the capacity to be notoriously unpredictable in the timing of their ovulation. This can lead to frustration, aggravation and distress in the owners and attending veterinarians.1 Thus, the question then becomes one of what is the optimal method for achieving the objective of timing control.
While there are a number of effective compounds that can help horse owners and managers induce ovulation, few are as widely applicable as progesterone, an endogenous steroid and progestogen sex hormone involved in the menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and embryogenesis.
Progesterone 150 mg/ml by NexGen may be used to synchronize estrus cycles for better breeding efficiency, but it is also extremely effective in preventing mares from coming into heat, to organize or regulate heat cycles during the mare's seasonal transition, and to help maintain pregnancy. It is also used to modify estrus-related behaviors that interfere with performance in non-breeding mares and stallions.
