Estimation of the week of conception in Merino ewes using real-time ultrasonic imaging

, : Estimation of the week of conception in Merino ewes using real-time ultrasonic imaging. Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture 33(7): 839-841

Real-time ultrasonic imaging was used to estimate the week of conception in a flock of 4- and 5-year-old Merino ewes. Rams were joined with ewes for 6 weeks after the ewes were 'teased' for 2 weeks by testosterone-treated wethers. The ewes were scanned 92 days after the introduction of the rams to determine litter size, then, based mainly on the sizes of the heads and bodies of the fetuses, the week of conception was estimated. These results were compared with the actual week of conception determined from weekly mating and daily lambing records. The week of conception was correctly estimated for 71% of the ewes. The consecutive 2-week period from the start of joining within which conception occurred was correct for 91% of the ewes. The correct half of the joining period within which conception occurred was diagnosed for 98% of the ewes.

TRPM2 is a member of the transient receptor potential melastatin-related (TRPM) family of cation channels, which possesses both ion channel and ADP-ribose hydrolase functions. TRPM2 has been shown to gate in response to oxidative and nitrosative s...

In lucerne which was given optimum or high rates of NPK and left uncut or cut 4 times during May to end-Sept., NAR was increased by increase in applied NPK. LAR was increased from 60 cm2/g DM in uncut plants to 200 cm2/g in plants which were cut....
