Resumen

La productividad y rentabilidad de las empresas ganaderas depende en gran medida de la capacidad fisiológica de las hembras para cumplir con el objetivo de tener una cría por año. Un factor determinante para lograrlo es reducir al máximo el periodo de anestro posparto, que es el tiempo luego del parto durante el cual no existen suficientes niveles pulsátiles de hormona luteinizante (LH) que permitan un desarrollo final del folículo y la consiguiente ovulación. Dos factores intervienen principalmente en este fenómeno: la nutrición y el amamantamiento. Existen señales metabólicas que indican al eje hipotálamo-hipófisis que se ha alcanzado un equilibrio en el balance energético para que este inicie la secreción de hormona liberadora de gonadotropinas (GnRH) y se inicie el restablecimiento de la actividad reproductiva. Por su parte, el estimulo que ejerce el ternero sobre la vaca genera secreción de endorfinas endógenas a nivel hipotalámico que también van a inhibir la liberación de GnRH. Otros factores que modulan los efectos de la nutrición y el amamantamiento son la edad, numero de partos, raza, estrés calórico y factores sociales (efecto macho y hembra). Generalmente, luego de la primera ovulación, se presenta un ciclo estral de corta duración que corresponde a una luteolisis temprana en respuesta a la prostaglandina F2 alfa (PGF2α) de origen uterino; sin embargo, los niveles de progesterona producidos durante este corto periodo ejercen un importante papel en el establecimiento de la ciclicidad subsecuente.
