    Hi :biggrin
    Firstly I'll point out that in Australia CIDR's are 100% legal and you can purchase them without seeing a vet, however the hormones (PM600????) are prescription. I'm hoping to breed 1 month before the breeding season commences, I have my CIDR's ready (which I should point out I hate using, hopefully the girls will forgive me! :nooo ;)) and my boys are keen enough-however I'm wondering what my conception rates are going to be like without the PM600 (pregnant mare serum???) my vet refuses to give it to me when using a live service he only gives it with frozen AI, will it be a reasonable rate? I have a dairy farmer friend who might be able to get the drug they use in cows (to sync heat, abort etc) but will it be any good??
    Any advice appreciated :crazy

    believe if you use lute before pulling you still will get conception but Kaye and Vicki will know for sure.

    There has been many successful breedings using Lutlyse(or Estrumate) on day 19 along with the CIDRs. :biggrin
