The length estrous cycle, prostrus, metaestrus and diestrus phases in T3, T4 and T5 revealed a statistical reduce when compared with T2 and no significant variation when compared with T1 in cycle five. The length of estrus phase hours showed a significant increase in T3, T4 and T5 as compared with T2 and no significant difference as compared with the T1 in cycle five.
