Abstract
In this study the main objective was to improve the conception rate of repeats breeder Nili-Ravi buffaloes during low breeding season by the use of GnRH (Dalmarelin). For this purpose 21 repeat breeder Nili-Ravi buffaloes were randomly selected and equally divided into three groups (A, B and C). Group A was treated with 2 ml Dalmarelin 1M at the time of insemination, group B was treated with 1ml of DaImarelin 1M at the time of insemination and 1ml twelve hours of post insemination, while group C (control) received an injection of 2ml normal saline 1M at the time of insemination. The mean progesterone concentration in group A was 0.95 ng/ml, group B, it was 0.94 ng/ml and in group C, 0.93 ng/ml on the day of estrus (day 0), while progesterone concentration of group A was 1.16 ng/ml, group B, it was 1.089 ng/ml and in Group C, it was 1.07 ng/ml on the 10th day of estrus cycle. The conception rate was recorded as 42.8% in group A, 28.6% in group- B and 14.3% in group-C.
