Overview

Came play a fundamental role in animal agriculture throughout the world. They not only provide us with a vital food source, but also with fertilizer and fuel. Keeping reproduction at an optimum level is therefore essential, but this is often a complicated process, especially with modern, high yielding cows. Written in a practical and user-friendly style, this book aims to help the reader understand cattle reproduction by explaining the underlying physiology of the reproductive process and the role and importance of pharmacology and technology, and by showing how management techniques can improve reproductive efficiency. Reproduction in Cattle is essential reading for veterinary and agricultural students, as well as veterinarians and farmers involved in cattle reproduction.
