Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Biology - Zoology, , language: English, abstract: In India stray cow menace is increasing day by day. Farmers do not want to keep the cows that become repeat breeders and cease giving milk. Induced lactation of non-pregnant cows may be a management alternative to reduce culling and increase profits (Magliaro et al., 2004). As cow slaughter and their use for meat purpose is not an option in India, the non-lactating repeat breeder cows are finally left stray on the roads. These stray animals again pose many kind of risks to the people in the form of accidents, zoonoses etc. The present clinical effort was hypothesized at inducing artificial lactation in such animals on one hand and treating infertility by the means of priming the reproductive tract with estrogen and progesterone on the other hand. The effort was also aimed at rehabilitating stray cows to reduce stray cow menace.
