Seventy-five cystic cows were divided into two groups. In an experimental group (n = 39) 16 cows were treated with 10 ml Ovarium compositum (i.m., s.c.), 16 cows with 10 ml Ovarium compositum twice in 3 days interval (i.m., s.c.) and 7 cows with 5 ml Ovarium compositum (s.c.). In a control group (n = 36) 26 cows were treated with GnRH agonist - lecirelin (100 mu g i.m.), 10 cows were treated with hCG (6 000 UI i.v.). Rectal palpation and ultrasound examination were performed at 7 days interval. A positive response (occurrence of corpus luteum or cyst luteinization or estrus with ovulation within 14 days after treatment) to the treatment in the experimental group occurred in 15 cows (38.5%) while in the control group in 30 cows (83.3%).
