Aim:  This study was conducted to examine the effect of blood metabolites on embryo quality in post-partum suckling Japanese Black cattle. Methods:  Blood samples were taken from 23 cows 30 days before, at and 30 days after parturition. Cows were synchronized 40 or 41 days after calving (day 0) and divided into three groups: control (n = 6), gonadotropin-releasing hormone ([GnRH]n = 10) and estradiol benzoate ([EB]n = 7). All groups received a controlled internal drug release (CIDR) device… CONTINUE READING
