The objective of this study was to determine if alterations in dietary intake of heifers can influence IGF-I concentrations in plasma and(or) follicular fluid (FFL), size of follicles, and steroid concentrations in FFL (as an indicator of steroidogenic capacity). Cyclic heifers [n = 23; mean +/- SE body weight (BW) = 373 +/- 7 kg] were individually fed for… CONTINUE READING
