Abstract

There has been no report of equine embryo transfer in Japan for the last 24 years. Our objective was to establish an effective protocol for embryo transfer in domestic horse. A Hokkaido native pony was bred by deep-horn artificial insemination with frozen semen from a Connemara pony. Embryo...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate the effect of the exogenous contribution of progesterone (P4) during 35 d post insemination in primiparous ewes on the percentage of gestation and embryonic mortality. Forty ewes were synchronized with the CIDR device, for a period of 9 d. Two d...

Abstract

Between the years 2013 and 2016 were used 31 crossbred cows of Gir and Dutch races, at different stages of gestation, multipara aged 4 and 8 years and body condition score (BCS) average 3 on a scale that ranged from 1 to 5 (1 very lean and 5 very fat) of the Federal Rural University of milk cattle...

Abstract

Seminal plasma has conventionally been viewed as a transport and survival medium for mammalian sperm; however, its role now extends beyond this process to actively targeting female tissues. Studies in rodents, swine, and humans demonstrate that seminal plasma induces molecular and cellular changes...

Abstract

This study evaluated the efficiency of a post-thaw diluent on the conception rate of timed artificial insemination (TAI), on the in vitro embryo production (IVEP), the fertilization rate and the computerized semen analysis. In the execution of all the techniques, semen straws of a single bull with...

Abstract

High reproductive performance is an element factor for profitability in dairy herds; although, pregnancy loss of non-infectious nature during early and mid-to-late embryonic period is increasing in dairy cattle. Based on that, the present study aimed to determine the incidence of pregnancy loss...

Abstract

Background: Following embryo transfer (ET), the size and breed of the recipient mare can affect fetal development and subsequent post natal growth rate and insulin sensitivity in foals. Objectives: To investigate placental adaptation in pregnancies where increased or restricted fetal growth was...

Abstract

Paraoxonase-1 (PON1) activity has been associated with improvement in ovarian function in early postpartum dairy cows and improved in vitro embryo development. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the potential association among PON1 activity and follicular growth, diameter of the...

Abstract

Nutrition, and particularly dietary energy intake, plays a fundamental role in reproductive function in cattle. There is some evidence that supplemental omega-3 dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) can exert positive effects on fertility. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the...
