Young bulls were treated with graded dosages of the LHRH agonist deslorelin to ascertain 1) whether increased testosterone secretion persisted over a wide dose range of agonist; 2) whether elevated testosterone was maintained long-term and, if so, what effects there were on reproductive function; and 3) what pituitary responses to exogenous LHRH occurred in intact and castrated bulls receiving deslorelin. In three experiments, bulls received dosages of agonist ranging from approximately 0.15 to… CONTINUE READING
