Abstract

On commercial farms, rabbit does are subjected to a reproductive rhythm that does not account for their welfare or physiology, leading to reduced longevity and consequently high annual replacement. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recommends limited and infrequent use of hormone...

Abstract

To investigate the influence of the age of bulls at semen production on the non-return rate 56 days after first insemination 39 AI-bulls were investigated. Because of the small sample size for the individual ejaculates the non-return rate included data from first to third breeding services. These...
