We determined whether source of trace mineral supplementation prior to embryo collection affected embryo production and quality. Angus half-sibling heifers (n=20) originating from a common herd were assigned to three treatment groups using a 3 x 3 latin square design replicated in time (3 x) and space (6 x complete and 1x incomplete): (1) heifers received no added mineral to their diet (control; n=53); (2) heifers received a commercially available organic mineral supplement (organic; n=52); or… CONTINUE READING
