Unformatted text preview: 48%. Using only the ovasynch method, pregnancy rates are only between 29%-38%. With no estrous synchronization, pregnancy rates have been reported at 12%-16%. The cost of the pre-synch protocol is about $6 per cow including labor. The cost of a cow not being pregnant is around $2.50, per cow, per day. Using the pre-synch protocol can save producers valuable money and time.
