Abstract

Two experiments were designed to evaluate the effect of different insemination times (12 and 24 h or 18 and 30 h) and different types of semen (sex-sorted or non-sorted sperm) on embryo production in Nelore (Bos indicus) and Holstein (Bos taurus) superstimulated donors. In the first experiment,...
