Reduced reproductive performance of lactating cows during the summer is associated with decreased thermoregulatory competence due to intensive genetic selection for high milk production. This review examines the immediate and delayed effects of heat stress on follicular function and describes some potential strategies for their alleviation. It focuses on how heat stress affects the follicle and its enclosed oocyte, suggesting that perturbations in the follicular microenvironment, to which the… CONTINUE READING
