An experiment was conducted to determine whether or not the effect of body condition at parturition, and thereafter, on the duration of the post-partum anoestrous period was mediated through differences in gonadotrophin receptor concentrations in the ovarian follicles. Two groups of cows were fed to achieve body condition scores of > or = 2.75 (H; n = 14) or < or = 2.00 (L; n = 15) at parturition (this had led to differences in the duration of post-partum anoestrus in previous experiments) and… CONTINUE READING
