Influence of follicular status on twinning rate in mares

Influence of follicular status on twinning rate in mares

Journal of Reproduction and Fertility. Supplement 35: 183-189

Between 1982 and 1985, 1015 mares were evaluated using the following parameters: age, mare status (maiden, barren, lactating), Caslick index, Caslick operation, ovarian cycle, ovarian and follicular size, treatments (HCG and intrauterine infusions), number of ovulations after mating (184 mares), number of conceptuses present, dimensions of embryonic vesicles, and pregnancy status 45 days after mating.
