Assessment of pregnancy in sheep by analysis of plasma progesterone using an amplified enzyme immunoassay technique

Assessment of pregnancy in sheep by analysis of plasma progesterone using an amplified enzyme immunoassay technique

Veterinary Record 121(3): 63-65

An amplified enzyme immunoassay kit for progesterone analysis was used to diagnose pregnancy in a flock of 130 mule ewes. An accuracy of 100% was obtained after the analysis of progesterone in plasma samples taken 15-16 days after mating. In mule ewes a plasma progesterone level greater than 5.9 nmol/litre was indicative of pregnancy.
