are the future of a herd.
Ensuring they are bred in
a timely manner and they
freshen between 22 and
24 months of age is crucial
to maintain productivity.
Synchronization with LUTALYSE®
Administering LUTALYSE®(dinoprost tromethamine) Sterile Solution to dairy heifers once they are moved into the breeding pen, and then 10 to 12 days later for animals not yet inseminated, can improve breeding success.3
Estrous synchronization with LUTALYSE and Eazi-Breed™ CIDR®
For dairy heifers not inseminated during their first 28 days in the breeding pen, use Eazi-Breed™ CIDR® Cattle Insert with LUTALYSE for timed breeding. LUTALYSE is the only prostaglandin approved by the FDA for use in synchronization protocols with Eazi-Breed CIDR.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR LUTALYSE: Women of childbearing age and
persons with respiratory problems should exercise extreme caution when handling
LUTALYSE. LUTALYSE is readily absorbed through the skin and may cause abortion and/or
bronchiospasms, therefore spillage on the skin should be washed off immediately with soap
and water. Aseptic technique should be used to reduce the possibility of post-injection
clostridial infections. Do not administer LUTALYSE in pregnant cattle unless cessation of
pregnancy is desired. See full Prescribing Information.
