The objective of this study was to determine the effects of supplemental bovine somatotropin (bST) and limit feeding on follicular growth and oocyte competence in yearling beef heifers. Sixteen growing heifers (424+/-4 kg) were randomly assigned to 1 of 4 treatments in a 2 x 2 factorial arrangement, with main effects of bST (0 or 33 microg/kg BW/d) and feeding regimen (ad libitum or 0.75 ad libitum intake). Animals were treated for 100 d prior to follicular aspiration, and treatments continued… CONTINUE READING
