Adding oxytocin to semen for better conception?

Post by scottherbert » Mon Aug 31, 2020 10:03 am

I have read and used oxytocin in the semen to improve conception rates. I wondered what else can be done this way?

GnRH? Would intrauterine absorption of GnRH increase or trigger ovulation?

Thanks

I have also done this with good success. Originally was presented at a breeders workshop by a production facility vet. He recommended 1/2 ML in the rod for AI.
