The effects of nutritionally-induced liveweight differences on follicular development, ovulation rate, oestrous activity and plasma follicle-stimulating hormone levels in the ewe



The effects of nutritionally-induced liveweight differences on follicular development, ovulation rate, oestrous activity and plasma follicle-stimulating hormone levels in the ewe



Animal Reproduction Science 19(1-2): 67-78



Romney ewes of similar mean live weight were differentially grazed to generate 2 treatment groups (n = 35) differing in mean live weight by approx. 15 kg. Oestrous cycles were synchronized by treatment for 14 days with intravaginal sponges, and the oestrous activity and ovulation rate for the cycle immediately following sponge withdrawal were recorded.
