Study of embryo and fetal mortality in sheep IV Effect of artificial and natural rain stress on ovulation rate and reproductive losses



Study of embryo and fetal mortality in sheep IV Effect of artificial and natural rain stress on ovulation rate and reproductive losses



Produccion Ovina: 21-29



Two experiments were carried out to evaluate the artificial and natural rain levels on ovarian activity and reproductive losses in Corriedale ewe. A survey was conducted in all ewes to determine the presence of <i>Toxoplasma</i> infection. Ovulation (OR) and fertilization rates (FR) were performed by laparoscopy and laparotomy, respectively. Fetal and embrionary wastages (EW) were estimated by ultrasonography.
