Resumen : This study was carried out in suckled Zebu Brahman under low altitude, tropical semi-intensive conditions, characterized by long opened-day periods (>150 days). This low reproductive efficiency is said to be due to suckling that takes place for about 8 months postpartum. 34 cows grazing Brachiaria humidicola were studied, beginning non earlier than 80 days postpartum and all of them presenting follicular dynamics as detected by ultrasonography. The cows were allocated to one of two groups: restricted (19) or non-restricted (15). The restriction consisted of a one- time isolation of calves for 72 hours. During the restriction and for two more days daily ecographic examination was performed. There after the cows were examined ecographically twice a week for two more weeks.. Observation for clinical signs of heat was done twice a day for one-hour period during the restriction and 10 days after. The variables considered were dominant follicular growth at divergency during restriction, and estrus presentation. Effect of restriction on estrus was analyzed with a logistic regression model, and the follicular growth with a general linear model p<0.05. No significant difference was found in the growth rate of divergent follicles between control and treatment cows (0.87 mm/day vs. 0.93 mm/day). All but one (94.7%) of restricted cows presented heat during the treatment, but interestingly, seven out of fifteen (46.6%) of the control did too, and this was significantly different (p<0.05). The practical end result is as good as expected but it remains to be determinined why a high unexpected number of control cows did present estrus too..
