Abstract

Determination of a boar's prepotency involves establishing how consistently boars pass on economically useful characteristics to their progeny.

Recent work with P-36 demonstrates that the replacement of the last two doses of Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) with equine chorionic gonadotropin (eCG) increases embryo yields. However, it is unclear if the positive effect of eCG is related to its FSH-like activity, LH-like activity, or both....
