The influence of source of protein during the luteal phase before a synchronized oestrus on the dynamics of follicular development, observed daily by ultrasonography, was assessed in ewes that were beginning the sexual season. Iso-nitrogenous amounts of soybean meal (SBM) or of a corn-gluten meal-ground-corn grain mixture (CGM-GC), or an iso-energetic amount of ground-corn grain (GC), were fed from four days before to four days after treatment with prostaglandin F2 alpha (PGF2 alpha).
