Relationship between Blood Serum Progesterone Levels in Cattle Donors and the Yield and Quality of Embryos

Abstract

Blood serum progesterone (P4) levels in donor cows and heifers at donor selection, superovulation, insemination and embryo recovery were investigated. Significant differences in P4 levels in the investigated donors during superovulatory oestrus insemination were observed. The cows with low levels of P4 at insemination (5.8 ± 1.7 nmol/l) showed a better… (More)
