The effect of dietary protein level on bovine follicular dynamics in beef heifers

Edwards Jennifer , Mongan Nigel , Rutland Catrin , Perry Viv , Robinson Robert

Introduction: Periconception dietary protein can affect fertility in cattle. This study investigated the effect of dietary crude protein intervention on gene expression in granulosa cells, metabolite concentrations in follicular fluid and serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) concentrations.Methods: Non-pregnant Angus cross heifers (n=320) were group fed an isocalorific low (LP 10%) or high (HP 14%) crude protein diet for >60 days prior to...

Introduction: This study investigates the effect of dietary crude protein on the cellular composition of the 98 days bovine placenta.Materials and methods: Primiparous 14-month-old Bos. indicus cross heifers in Australia (n=350) were individually fed isocalorific high (H; 14%) or low (L; 7%) CP from day −60 prior to conception to 23 days post conception (dpc). At 23 days post-conception the two groups were further split into high ...
