Acerca de


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.

From the Back Cover:

Cattle play a fundamental role in animal agriculture throughout the world. They not only provide us with a vital food source, but they also provide us with fertilizer and fuel. Keeping reproduction levels 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 showing how management techniques can improve reproductive efficiency.

This edition includes:

  • Recent research findings on the physiology of the oestrous cycle and its control

  • New techniques for monitoring and manipulating reproduction, including pregnancy diagnosis and embryo transfer

  • Advice on identifying common infertility problems and how to prevent and treat them.

Reproduction in Cattle is essential reading for veterinary and agricultural students, as well as veterinarians and farmers involved in cattle reproduction.
