Effects of recombinant bovine somatotropin (bST) on growth of the corpus luteum (CL) and development of ovarian follicles were tested. Starting at estrus (Day=0), the following treatments were administered: control (saline injected Days 0 to 19, n=5); bST[0-9] (25 mg bST injected Days 0 to 9, saline injected Days 10 to 19, n=5); bST[10-19] (saline injected Days 0 to 9, 25 mg bST injected Days 10 to 19, n=5); and bST[0-19] (25 mg bST injected Days 0 to 19, n=6). Blood was collected daily for… CONTINUE READING
