Research Organisation

Charles Sturt University

Objective Summary

Currently there are no practically useful techniques to synchronise oestrus and ovulation in the mare. Ovulation synchronisation is essential if artificial breeding technologies such as frozen semen AI, embryo transfer, and oocyte transfer are to become efficient and reliably successful procedures. The overall aim of this project is to develop of a novel and practical protocol for the synchronisation of oestrus and ovulation in the mare.
