The effect of PMSG hormone application on reproductive efficiency in different periods in Kilis goats together with PGF2a


In this study, a total of 120 does were separated into the designated groups according to the administration of PMSG prior to the second PGF2-alpha (PGF2a) injection to obtain an alternative hormone protocol in order to increase oestrous control and reproductive efficiency in Kilis goats. Goats in control group were managed under the breeder’s conditions from mating to weaning after birth. Prostaglandin F2-alpha was primed twice with interval of 11-days (on August 11 and August 22, 2017) at 12:00 pm. Pregnant mare serum gonadotropin (PMSG, 500 IU) was injected at 24, 18, 12, 6 and 0-hours prior to the injection of PGF2a to the groups. After the second PGF2α administration, goats in heat were detected by a teaser buck and mated in 12 and 24-hours. The highest twinning rate was obtained in the 12-hour group.
