Overview

The efficient management of reproduction is essential to maximise the productivity and profitability of cattle farming.

Here, the anatomy and physiology of the male and female reproductive systems are described with emphasis on important recent advances such as in the hormonal control of the oestrous cycle, artificial insemination, the establishment of pregnancy, embryo loss and its possible prevention. Parturition and lactation, including their manipulation, are covered as are factors affecting the post-partum anoestrous period, which is of vital importance in maintaining herd calving interval sna patterns. Common reproductive problems of bulls and cows, and the rapidly advancing field of reproductive technology - embryo transfer, in vitro fertilization, embryo sexing and cloning - are reviewed.

The book concludes with a discussion of the principles of reproductive management and selection of cattle for breeding. The emphasis throughout is on the interaction of physiology, pharmacology, technology, management and genetics of reproduction to maximize reproductive performance in cattle.
