Hormone profiles in Javanese's thin tail ewes with and without a prolificacy gene



Hormone profiles in Javanese's thin tail ewes with and without a prolificacy gene



Animal Technology 48(3): 85-92



Blood samples were collected daily during the oestrous cycle of 6 ewes homozygous for the FecJ prolificacy gene (genotype FF) and 6 ewes that did not carry the gene (++). FSH concentrations on days 4 and 8 of the oestrous cycle were significantly higher in ++ than in FF ewes. LH concentrations on days 9 and 12 were significantly higher in FF than in ++ ewes. Progesterone concentration in FF ewes on day 7 significantly exceeded that of ++ ewes.
