Twenty four post-partum true anestrous cows were divided randomly into three equal groups
viz. T1, T2 and C consisting 8 crossbred Jersey cows in each group. The cows in T1 group were
treated with Agrimin powder (Glaxo) @ 30 gram orally daily for 21 days and vitamin-A injection
(Glaxo) 4 ml i/m on alternate day for 3 days. The cows in T2 group were given Prajana HS capsule
(Indian Herbs) @ 3 capsules orally for two consecutive days and repeated the same dose on 11th
and 12th day after first treatment. The cows in C group were kept as control and no treatment was
given to them. Induction of estrus was 87.5%, 75.0% and 37.5% in T1, T2 and C groups respectively.The occurrence of estrus in T1 group differed significantly (p0.05) from C group. Conceptionrate was 71.4%, 50.0% and 33.3% in T1, T2 and C groups respectively. There was no significant difference of conception rates amog the different groups.
