Abstract

An investigation was conducted to determine the effects of supplementing hCG at mating time on luteal function, conceptus growth, placentation and reproductive performance in Texel×Clun Forest ewe lambs.

At 25 days after mating 24 animals were slaughtered from each group to determine embryo viability and placental development. hCG significantly (P
