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

Although essential for artificial insemination (AI) and MOET (multiple ovulation and embryo transfer), oestrus synchronisation and superovulation are associated with increased female reproductive tract mucus production and altered sperm transport. The effects of such breeding practices on the ovine ...

Abstract

This review considers the use of prostaglandin F and its synthetic analogues (PG) for controlling the estrous cycle of the ewe. Aspects such as phase of the estrus cycle, PG analogues, PG doses, ovarian follicle development pattern, CL formation, progesterone synthesis, ovulation rate, sperm...

Abstract

The objective of this experiment was to study the reproductive performance obtained after a short-interval prostaglandin (PG) F2α-based protocol for timed artificial insemination (TAI) in sheep (Synchrovine®: two injections of PG 7 d apart), including a GnRH analogue at 24 or 36 h after the second...

Abstract

Four experiments are described. In experiment 1, ewes were treated with intravaginal sponges impregnated with Cronolone, plus a daily injection in oil of 0, 5 or 25 mu g oestradiol-17 beta commencing on day 0 or 5 of the cycle. Cronolone suppressed luteal activity below that of untreated ewes. This ...

Abstract

Progesterone levels in jugular plasma samples indicated that exogenous progesterone treatments were not interfering with the development of corpora lutea, but were inducing premature luteal regression. It was observed that short cycles occurred only in ewes treated before day 4 of the oestrous...

Abstract

The concentration of progesterone in the plasma of 15 Finnish Landrace, 17 Fingalway (Finnish Landrace X Galway) and 18 Galway ewes was measured throughout the oestrous cycle. Blood samples were taken daily between 09.00 and 11.00 h. The ovaries were examined by laparoscopy, and the number of...
