Control of oestrus in blue foxes by means of additional light

, : Control of oestrus in blue foxes by means of additional light. Finsk Palstidskrift 20(12): 647-649

Of 74 young and 52 adult blue fox which received 4 h extra light per day from 1 Feb. to 15 Mar., 90.9 and 100% resp. mated vs. 88.7 and 100% of 72 and 53 young and adult subjected to natural daylight (controls). In the group receiving extra light, 16 and 63% of young and adult resp. had mated by 31 Mar. vs. 10 and 42% of control and the number of cubs born per mated averaged 7.25 and 9.93 vs. 6.73 and 8.74.

An illustrated description is given of a meter, developed in Norway, for measuring the electric resistance of the vaginal mucous membrane. After tests on 100 blue fox, 18 silver fox and 11 raccoon dog females , it was concluded that the apparatus...

During proestrus, baseline LH [luteinizing hormone] concentrations for 9 vixens (pooled data) were 0.8-5.3 ng/ml. In each vixen, baseline levels were interrupted by elevations of LH ranging from 3.1-10.4 ng/ml. A major preovulatory LH surge was de...
