The response of estrus can be enhanced by providing PGF2α and a combination of PGF2αGnRH so that the time of mating using Artificial Insemination (AI) can be held precisely. This study aims to compare the response of estrus synchronization using PGF2α compare to PGF2α-GnRH. Twenty female cattle Ongole Crossbreds, 4-6 years, BCS average of 3-4 were used in this research. Cattle were selected based on their luteal phase at the days of 7 to 18 by rectal examination. Then, all of the cattle were injected by cloprostenol® with a dose of 500 ug intrauterine. Ten of the animals were injected by 2.5 mL of Fertagyl® intramuscularly after 48 hours then continued observing and response estrus detection. The onset of estrus using PGF2α was detected on 75.94 ± 0.78, while 41.57 ± 28.40 hours for PGF2α-GnRH Using statistical, there was a significant difference (P<0.05). Duration of estrus phase using PGF2α was 24.65 ± 0.49 whereas PGF2α-GnRH was 10.88 ± 7.45 hours. Using statistical methods, there was a significant difference (P <0.05). It could be concluded that the use of PGF2α was more effective for the duration and intensity of estrus, and a combination of PGF2α -GnRH is more effective for stimulating estrus.
