Abstract

Laparoscopic artificial insemination (LAI) is an intrauterine method of insemination, especially utilized in the small ruminant species to bypass their unique anatomically tortuous cervix. There are several advantages of LAI that include efficient use of processed semen leading to higher pregnancy...

Abstract

In ruminants, IFN-tau (IFNT) is a pregnancy recognition signal secreted by the embryonic trophectoderm before implantation, and it induces the expression of IFN-stimulated genes (ISG) in the uterine endometrium and blood leukocytes. The expression of ISG in blood leukocytes could indicate the...

Abstract

The study of reproductive physiology in domestic ruminants has progressed from the whole animal to the molecular level in an amazingly short period of time. The volume of information on this subject is enormous; therefore, we have focused on domestic ruminants, with an emphasis on cattle. To date, ...

Abstract

The objective of the current study was to determine if Nerve Growth Factor-Beta (NGF), purified from bovine seminal plasma, would improve corpus luteum function and enhance conceptus development when administered to cows at artificial insemination. Angus cows (n=60) were synchronized using a...

Abstract

Pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (PAG) are expressed in the placenta of ungulate mammals. Ruminants secrete PAGs continuously from embryonic implantation until delivery. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility of using ELISA to detect PAG levels as a method for early pregnancy diagnosis in...

Abstract

Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis is a multisystemic infectious disease, caused by a lentivirus. The objective of this study was to evaluate the transmissibility of caprine lentivirus to goats and their offspring, through experimentally infected semen. Therefore, eleven free-CAEV goats were...

Abstract

During the last 10 years the U.S. dairy industry has experienced a reversal of the decades-long trend in declining fertility traits. In fact, there is evidence that, nationally, this is contributing to improvements in pregnancy rates. And while these measures are still close to their historical...

Abstract

In ruminants, more than 30% of the embryonic loss observed after artificial insemination has an early origin that is coincident with the marked elongation of the conceptus that occurs before implantation. During this developmental phase, physiological interactions are established between the...

Abstract

The effects on cow and calf performance of replacing grass silage with brewers grains in diets based on barley straw and fed to pregnant beef cows are reported. Using a 2×2 factorial arrangement of breed and diet, cows pregnant by artificial insemination (n=34) of two breeds (cross-bred Limousin, ...
