Superovulation alone may not be enough to result in developmentally competent oocytes. The objective of this study was to determine if a time interval between FSH administration and slaughter and between slaughter and oocyte recovery could increase the percentage of embryos. Beef heifers (n = 20) were superovulated with 1 bolus injection of 25 mg, im FSH-P diluted in saline and then slaughtered at 24, 48 or 72 h after FSH injection and the ovaries transported to the laboratory at 30 degrees C… CONTINUE READING
