It was the purpose of this investigation to ascertain whether additional estrogenic substance injected into cows at the beginning of the estrus period would influence the conception rate or the time of ovulation. The synthetic estrogen, dienestrol, was used in these experiments. It is highly soluble, quick acting and is relatively inexpensive.
