Management of pre-pubertal small ruminants: physiological basis and clinical approach.

Abstract

Puberty is a gradual process, during which animal reproductive competence is attained with respect to physiology, morphology and behaviour. Onset of puberty in small ruminants differs between sexes, due to early sexual differentiation in the control of steroid feedback systems and, thus, GnRH secretion. A number of puberty determinants have been identified… (More)
