The objective of this study was to develop a model for the study of abnormal ovarian follicles in cattle by treating heifers with adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH) (100 iu at 12 h intervals for 7 days, beginning on day 15 of the oestrous cycle). Cortisol concentrations increased (P < 0.05) within 24 h after beginning ACTH treatment and cortisol and… CONTINUE READING
