Studies on the Effect of Copper and Selenium on Granulosa Cell Estradiol Synthesis in Goats
Since copper as well as selenium stimulated the estradiol synthesis, they can be considered as potential minerals to supplement along with hormones in estrus induction or estrus synchronization protocols to minimize the use of hormones.
Importance of micro minerals in reproductive performance of livestock.
There is a need to map of the various nutrient status in soil, fodder and animal, so that accordingly an area specific mineral may me supplemented.
