The fine structure of follicles was studied in ovaries from lambs up to 32 days old. Some animals received pregnant mare serum gonadotrophin prior to sampling. Follicles examined were in the primordial to early antral stages. The oocyte is described and changes associated with its development and the formation of the zona pellucida are recorded.
