The rostral part of the bovine vomeronasal complex was examined to determine its relation structures of the palate which are compressed by the tongue during investigative sexual behavior. The rostral vomeronasal cartilage (VNC) is C-shaped and contains the incisive duct (ID). The hilus of the cartilage is directed medially, approximately 0.5 cm dorsal to the palate. Just caudal to the origin of the vomeronasal duct, the VCN lies approximately 1 cm above the palate with a ventrally oriented… CONTINUE READING
