Histological and steroidogenic changes within dominant ovarian follicles (DFs) undergoing atresia following systemic administration of oestradiol benzoate (ODB) were characterized in beef heifers. At 5.6+/-0.1 days after the onset of oestrus, heifers received 1 mg ODB i.m./500 kg body weight (ODB; n=15) or served as controls (n=15). Timing of treatment initiation was designated as hour (h) 0 on day (d) 0, and coincided with the presence of the DF of the first follicular wave (DF1). Within… CONTINUE READING
