Figure 1.

The effect of an injectable trace mineral (Multimin 90, MM1) or sterilized saline solution (CON1) at the initiation of a synchronization protocol on heifer AI and final pregnancy rates over 2 consecutive years in Exp. 1. Pregnancy rates to timed AI and overall pregnancy rates were similar for CON1 and MM1 treated heifers (P ≥ 0.74).

Figure 2.

The effect of an injectable trace mineral (Multimin 90, MM2) or sterilized saline solution (CON2) at the initiation of a synchronization protocol on heifer AI and final pregnancy rates over 2 consecutive years in Exp. 2. * indicates a tendency (P = 0.07) for MM2 AI conception rates to be greater than CON2 heifers. Overall pregnancy rates were similar for CON2 and MM2 treated heifers (P = 0.51).

Figure 3.

The effect of an injectable trace mineral (Multimin 90, MM3) or sterilized saline solution (CON3) at the initiation of a synchronization protocol on heifer AI and final pregnancy rates in Exp. 3. Pregnancy rates to timed AI and overall pregnancy rates were also similar for both CON3 and MM3 treated heifers (P ≥ 0.50).
