Abstract

Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the reproductive performance of a new artificial insemination (AI) device specifically designed for gilts (Deep cervical AI, Dp-CAI) by means of which the sperm is deposited deeply in the cervix (8 cm more cranial than in traditional cervical ...

AbstractFull Text

Reproductive failures are often difficult to diagnose. However, use of gestation flow charts and sow card information can be very helpful in determining when problems occurred, and which management phases should be examined. Regular returns to estrus after insemination usually are conception...

Abstract

This study evaluated the effect of breed and follicular status of Boer and indigenous goats on response to superovulation and embryo yield. The oestrous cycles were synchronized with progestagen for nine days and superovulated with porcine follicle-stimulating hormone. Does were cervically...

Abstract

Reasons for performing study: Few studies have investigated ovarian function in the mare undergoing porcine zona pellucida (pZP) immunocontraception despite reported ovarian dysfunction in other species. Objectives: This study aimed to describe ovarian function and oestrous cyclicity in pony mares...

Abstract

The aims of this study were to determine if pre- and post-mating feeding levels interact to affect embryonic survival, and to determine whether feeding to the maintenance requirement would impair embryo survival. Gilts were allocated to a pre-mating treatment of 1 or 0.8× energy maintenance from...

Abstract

It is widely accepted that uterine contraction is initiated by spontaneous generation of electrical activity at a cellular level in the form of action potentials. Such action potential events, when they involve many myometrial cells and occur in immediate succession, are described by their...

Abstract

The present study was conducted to determine whether vaginal electrical resistance (VER) can be exploited to improve the low reproductive efficiency of the rare Okinawan native Agu pig, in which estrous signs are difficult to ascertain by visual observation. The lowest VER (272.0±12.4 units, n=5)...

Abstract

Changes in the genital mucus around the oestrus are used by different diagnostic methods to determine optimal fertilisation time. In the current study, the authors evaluated the different arborisation patterns found in vestibular mucus, and also established its relationship with vestibular...
