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

Reproduction of small ruminants can be controlled by several methods developed in recent decades. Some of these involve administration of hormones that modify the physiological chain of events involved in the sexual cycle. Methods which utilise progesterone or its analogues are based on their...

Abstract

The aim of this experiment was to improve the reproductive performance of a short-interval prostaglandin (PG)-based protocol for timed artificial insemination in sheep, using a short-term nutritional treatment. During the breeding season (March-April), 132 multiparous and 61 nulliparous Corriedale...

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

The views of the authors are expressed in the light of their experimental work. The physiological principles of control of the ovarian cycle are discussed, together with the practical problems associated with such control. The complexities of the problems directly and indirectly associated with...

Abstract

When injections of 2, 000 I.U. of P.M.S. (pregnant mare's serum) were given intramuscularly to sows during the luteal phase of the cycle, the effect was found to be largely if not solely follicle stimulating. Service of these animals confirmed that the semen is deposited into the uterus at this...

Abstract

A PRELIMINARY report of the 1st series of experiments has already been abstracted [see A. B. A., 17, No. 972]. A single intravenous injection of unfractionated sheep pituitary extract was given to groups of gilts (18 Chester Whites and 9 Poland-Chinas) on the 6th day of the luteal phase, or on the...
