Thirty of the 50 heifers used in estrous synchronization studies and that received prostaglandin and Syncro-Mate B to synchronize estrus were subjected to sound stress for 48 hours after prostaglandin was injected. Fifty-nine percent of 29 sound-stressed heifers that showed estrus within 5 days conceived when artificially inseminated compared with 72 percent of 18 nonstressed heifers.
