Oestrus was synchronized outside the normal breeding season in two groups of 25 and 30 dry Africander cows respectively by administration of progesterone in oil + PMS (group I) and progesterone in oil + prostaglandin + PMS (group II). 76,0% of group I exhibited oestrus during the period 48 to 192 h after PMS administration cf 73,3% in group II in the period 36 to 144 h after PMS administration.
