Abstract

Donkey farming is expanding because of the rediscovery of nutritional properties of jennies' milk for human consumption. In livestock, timed artificial insemination (TAI) allows to manage big herds without estrus detection, but there are very few studies on estrus synchronization in jennies. The...
