Abstract

This simulation study investigated the farm-level economic benefits of a genetic improvement scheme using artificial insemination (AI) with fresh ram semen in dairy sheep of the Chios breed in Greece. Data were collected from 67 farms associated with the Chios Sheep Breeders' Cooperative...

Abstract

A total of 2567 indigenous Greek ewes (Chios, Vlachiki and Vlachiki × Chios breeds) were used to determine the optimum time for insemination, following synchronization of oestrus with MAP (Veramix)-impregnated intravaginal sponges and PMSG (Intergonan) during non-breeding season. Within each breed...

Abstract

In the first experiment, 22 primiparous Karagouniko ewes were divided into 4 groups: subclinical mastitis was induced by inoculating mammary glands with Staphylococcus epidermidis on the 6th and 27th day post partum in 2 groups (2 groups were controls). In the second experiment, subclinical...

Abstract

The effect of year of production, lactation number, time of milking, month of recording and stage of lactation on milk yield and composition was examined in 598 milk records of Chios ewes from the experimental flock of the Institute of Reproduction and Artificial Insemination of Thessaloniki,...

Abstract

During the spring in Greece, 207 anoestrus multiparous Chios × Karagouniko ewes were given an intravaginal sponge impregnated with progestogen (60 mg MAP) inserted for 14 days and an injection of 500 IU PMSG on the day of sponge removal. 93 ewes also received a melatonin implant (18 mg) 35 days...

Abstract

Data were analysed from records for the period 1976-96 on a flock originally comprising 70 ewes, rising to 105 ewes in 1986 and declining to 51 ewes in 1996. The ewes were mated naturally and at random. Overall, the percentage of ewes lambing was 84.4 (64.6-100), lambing rate 115% (96-125), the...

Abstract

The reproductive performance of 1250 Mytilini [Mytilene] ewes after oestrus synchronization and AI was studied in the Evros region of Greece. All ewes were treated with progestogen-impregnated sponges which were removed after 14 days; ewes were then injected with PMSG. 48 and 60 h after sponge...
