Ultrasonography and endocrine assay techniques were used to monitor structural and hormonal alterations made by the ovary in response to the biological actions of pituitary-derived follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH-P). Angus heifers (n = 36) were allotted to receive injections (twice per day) of either FSH-P (up to a total of 28 mg over a maximum of 4 days beginning on Day 10 of a synchronized estrous cycle) or saline in order to quantify temporal relationships among follicle growth and steroid… CONTINUE READING
