Each of sixty Rasa aragonesa ewes received two embryos on Days 2-3 of the estrous cycle (Day 0=estrus) from 27 donors of the same breed that were superovulated with pFSH. The influence of several variables on fertility and prolificacy after transfer was studied by discriminant analysis. Our results showed that the main variables contributing to higher fertility were: in the donor-recipient couple, degree of estrus synchrony between them (better if donors were in estrus before recipients); in… CONTINUE READING
