Our AI program

DGNZ AI program is a 14-day process:

  • Day 1: Insert Controlled Internal Drug Release (CIDR.G)

  • Day 12: at a specific time, remove CIDR.G and inject 1ml of PMSG

  • 56 Hours later: Do the AI

  • Hinds will then exhibit standing heat 36-48 hours after the CIDR pull. It is very important to keep stags away over this period.
