This article considers causes of variability in male sexual performance and identifies management techniques that can be used to improve the reproductive success and efficacy of our captive animal populations.
OBJECTIVE To assess the reliability of a specially designed dynamometer anchoring station in the measurement of hip muscle strength. DESIGN Prospective study using test-retest design. SETTING Outpatient clinic setting. PARTICIPANTS Ten subjects, ages 25 to 35yrs. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Using the apparatus, three consecutive measures were recorded for(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the hypothesis that fenceline contact between beef calves and cows at weaning reduces indices of behavioral distress and associated temporary reductions in weight gain. One hundred Angus/Hereford-cross calves were randomly assigned to five treatments for 7 d in each of 3 yr to determine the effect of different(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the sexual performance of rams that differed in age (maturation) and sexual experience. Twenty-four ram lambs (8 mo of age) and 21 rams (20 mo of age) were individually exposed to four females in hormonally induced estrus for 30 min on five occasions, 7 d apart. Half (12) the ram lambs and nine of the yearlings were(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which sexual performance (serving capacity) tests can be used to predict the sexual behavior and reproductive success of rams in the context of pen mating. Standard serving capacity tests were used to select four low (LP) and four high-performing (HP) rams from a population of 94 yearling males. Each(More)
The objective of this study was to identify rams exhibiting high (HP) and low (LP) levels of sexual performance and to determine whether their respective behavioral responses to ewes in estrus were related to changes in serum testosterone (T) and LH concentrations. Rams were selected on the basis of standardized serving capacity tests. Plasma T and LH(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Staphylococcus aureus is recognized to produce toxins A-E and toxic shock syndrome toxin-1 associated with food poisoning and toxic shock syndrome. Enterotoxins G and I co-exist in the same S aureus strains (staphylococcal enterotoxin G and staphylococcal enterotoxin I) and are implicated in scarlet fever and toxic shock. We report these(More)
Early postweaning experience in an enriched environment had a greater influence on the open-field behavior and body weight of wild Norway rats than of their domestic counterparts. Genetic changes accompanying the domestication process may have reduced the relative impact of postweaning experience on the development of the domestic rat's response to changes(More)
In the present study, 12 Hereford bulls approximately 22.5 mo of age were individually introduced to a restrained nonestrous stimulus female for 15 to 30 min under four treatment conditions: (1) without prior sexual stimulation and visually isolated from male conspecifics (control), (2) being watched by another male during matings, (3) after observing the(More)
