Breeding synchronization protocols evolve rapidly as newer procedures are tested and improvements are made. To help producers, veterinarians and industry professionals deal with rapid change and make informed decisions related to synchronization protocols, the Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council (DCRC) has created synchronization protocol sheets for dairy cows and dairy heifers. The documents outline established synchronization protocols that may help dairy producers improve on-farm reproductive performance.
The DCRC does not endorse one protocol over another, nor does DCRC endorse synchronization protocols over any of the other approaches to dairy cattle reproduction. The protocol sheets will be reviewed annually by representatives from the DCRC. New protocols will be included when they are validated in controlled studies.
