Two experiments were done to test the hypotheses that aging in cattle is associated with a reduced number of follicles recruited into an ovarian follicular wave, and a reduction in the ovarian response to gonadotropin treatment. Older cows (13-16 years of age) and their daughters (3-6 years of age) were treated with FSH for ovarian superstimulation four times over two consecutive years (31 and 33 superstimulations in old and young cows, respectively, experiments and years combined).
