Title: Efficacy Evaluation of Herbal Teat Dip “Mastidip Liquid” in Sub-Clinical Mastitis in Crossbred Cows
Abstract :
The present investigation was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of herbal teat dip Mastidip Liquid (supplied by m/s Ayurvet Ltd, Baddi, India) in subclinical mastitic cows on the basis of restoration of altered milk pH and somatic cells count (SCC). Twenty crossbred cows screened positive for subclinical mastitis were selected and divided into two equal groups. Herbal teat dip Mastidip Liquidwas applied post milking in 1:1 dilution (one part concentrated solution + one part clean water) twice daily immediately after milking for a
period of30 days in one group (II) and for 45 days in other group (III). One additional group of 10 intact cows were taken as normal control group (I). Milk samples were collected for SCC and pH examination before initiation of teat dipping and on 7,14,21,28, 35 and 49th day post application of teat dip. The pH and SCC was normalized and milk yield improved after treatment with Mastidip Liquid. In conclusion, post milking teat dipping withMastidip
Liquidis found to be effective teat sanitizer in prevention of new intramammary infection in dairy cows and reducing the incidence of subclinical mastitis.
Title: Facts around Mitochondrial Shape,Reorganization and Oocyte Maturation
Abstract :
Mitochondria are a membrane-enclosed organelles found in most eukaryotic cells. Mitochondria are sometimes described as “energy house” because they generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is used as a source of chemical energy. In addition, they are involved in cell signaling, cellular differentiation, cell growth, cell cycle and cell death. However, the exact role of mitochondria
during in vitro embryo production technology wasn’t fully understood; especially the repositioning of active mitochondria during oocyte maturation, fertilization, and culturing. So, this study aimed to clarify the relationship
between oocyte maturation and the repositioning of active mitochondria. It has
been found and in contrast to previous reports that repositioning of active mitochondria isn’t an utter sign to completion of oocyte maturation. In addition, oocyte mitochondria have fine crystal shape, other than, coarse
particles in previous reports.
Title: Hysteroscopic Visualization of Bubaline Uterus
Abstract :
Hysteroscopic visualization of buffalo uteri (n=20) was performed using a rigid endoscope. The genitals from estrus buffaloes (20.0%) revealed the presence of uterine wall folding and presence of mucus whereas; haemorrhages on the uterine wall could be visualized in 5% of the genitalia. It was concluded that
hysteroscopic visualization of bubaline uterus can provide additional information on the internal uterine structures.
Title: Fatigueness and Work Efficiency of Large White Donkeys
Abstract :
Three pairs of adult Large White Donkeys (Equus asinus), based on similar age, height & weight were selected for this study. The experiment was conducted in triplicate, on different set of workloads such as Light (30
kg draft), Moderate (45 kg draft) and Heavy (60 kg draft) on same set of animals for the evaluation of Fatigueness and work efficiency. The same working schedule (1 hr work - ½ hr rest - 1 hr work i.e. 2 hrs work /day from 6.30 am to 8.30 am) was followed in all the experiments for a period of 5 days. Physiological symptoms (RR/min., PR/min. & BT as °C) as well as behavioral symptoms (excitement, frothing, tongue protrusion, panting, leg in-coordination, & sweating) of the experimental animals were recorded at 0
hr, 1st hr and 2nd hr of the work. The results of fatigue score during light, moderate and heavy work were 0, 5 & 9 at the end of 1st hr of the
work where as at the end of 2nd hour of the work they were 5, 10 and 18. The behavioral symptoms particularly panting and sweating were more pronounced and complete reluctant to work was noticed in heavy type of the work experiment whereas animals were quite normal during light & moderate type of the work experiment.
Title: Superovulatory Response Following Transvaginal Follicle Ablation in Murrah Buffalo: Effect of FSH or PMSG+FSH
Abstract :
The current experiment was conducted to reduce the cost of superovulation by reducing the dose of FSH by partial replacement with PMSG. Five elite, multiparous, Murrah buffaloes, 80 to 120 days postpartum, were included in multiple-ovulation embryo transfer (MOET) schedule. The estrus was synchronized with one injection of prostaglandin. Superovulatory treatment was started from day 10 of induced estrus after ablation of dominant follicle of over 10 mm diameter, using 5.0 MHz convex-array intravaginal transducer using a B-mode scanner with aspiration assembly. Study was undertaken in two groups. For FSH treated group, Folltropin was administered in a twice daily descending dose schedule (0–5, 5–4, 4–3, 3–2, 2–2 ml; 20 mg/ml, total dose 600 mg of FSH. For PMSG+FSH treated group, an injection of PMSG (1000 IU) was given in the evening of day 10 followed by dose 400 mg
FSH and schedule as of FSH treated group from the evening of day 11.
Title: Fetotomy a Resolution to Dystocia in a Mare — A Case Report
Abstract :
A case of dystocia in an Arabian more with transverse presentation of the fetals that was resolved by pastial fetotomy and careful mutation is reposted. With sufficient care after fetal delivers the more recovered without any complication.
Title: Superovulatory Responses and Embryo Recoveries in Rathi (Bos indicus) Cattle with Different Doses of Folltropin-V
Abstract :
The superovulatory responses and embryo recoveries in Rathi cows superovulated with different doses of Folltropin-V were tested. Post-partum cows were superovulated 60 days post-partum using 400, 300, 200 or 240 mg of Folltropin-V administered in 8 descending doses 12 h IM starting from day 8-10 of a CIDR-B. Cows were induced to estrus by IM administration of a prostaglandin (Inj Cyclix) and withdrawal of CIDR-B at the time of last
injection of FSH. Cows were inseminated thrice at 12 h interval using frozen semen. Embryos were recovered by non-surgical means on day seven of insemination. Transrectal ultrasonography was performed on the day of embryo recovery to record the number of unovulated follicles and the number of corpora lutea. Estrus expression was poor in superovulated donors which posed a difficulty in precise timing of insemination.
Title: Effects of Breed and Prostaglandin Administration on Reproductive Performance and Profitability of Egyptian Ewes
Abstract :
The object of this study was to investigate the influence of breeds, equine chorionic gonadotropin (eCG) and prostaglandin F2alpha (PGF2α) administration on reproductive performance in Egyptian ewes in relation to
the economic efficiency of these hormonal treatments. For the estrus cycle control, the ewes received on Day 0 an intravaginal implant with 40 mg of Flugestone acetate. On 12th day the intravaginal implants were removed and
animals were divided into other two groups: Group 1) 36 ewes received only 400 IU eCG at the time of removal of the sponges (Ossami, n = 15; Rahmani, n= 12; Crossbred, n = 9). Group 2) 32 ewes received 400 IU eCG plus 0.5 ml PGF2á at the time of removal of the sponges (Ossami, n = 10; Rahmani, n= 12; Crossbred, n = 10). Estrus response, onset of estrus, pregnancy rate, lambing rate, litter size and multiple births were recorded.
