Improving reproductive efficiency in a beef herd can be as easy as one trip through the chute. Dr. Joe Gillespie, professional services veterinarian with Boehringer-Ingelheim, said beef producers can better forecast calving season and related management with basic estrus synchronization.

Gillespie said just one administration of prostaglandin can introduce synchronization within a herd.
