Abstract

Over the past decades in vitro production (IVP) of bovine embryos has been significantly improved and in particular bovine IVP is now widely applied under field conditions. This in vitro technique provides new opportunities for cattle producers, particularly in the dairy industry, to overcome...

Abstract

The domestic pig is not only an economically-important livestock species, but also an increasingly recognized biomedical animal model due to its physiological similarities with humans. As a result, there is a strong interest in the factors that affect the efficient production of viable embryos and...

Abstract

Important early studies on mammalian artificial insemination (AI) were carried out in equids, and at the end of the 19th century, the first AI programs were set up in horses. At that time, the most systematic research on equine AI was performed in Russia. After World War I, AI research shifted to ...

Abstract

Analysis of luminal fluid microenvironments in the reproductive tract is pivotal to elucidate embryo-maternal signaling mechanisms responsible for successful reproduction in mammals, including cattle. Besides facilitating production of an optimized medium for in vitro fertilization and embryo...

Abstract

Despite being developed in its present form 20 years ago, sex-sorting of mammalian sperm is still a work in progress. While relatively successful in cattle and sheep, the unique challenges of incorporating sex-sorted sperm into pig production have not yet been overcome. Generally speaking, boar...

Abstract

The mammalian oviduct has long been recognized as an organ essential for successful reproduction. Bovine, ovine, porcine, and equine animal models have offered clear advantages for oviduct study related to gamete physiology, fertilization, and early embryonic development. Livestock species are...
