When you're looking for a comprehensive and reliable text on largeanimal reproduction, look no further! the seventh edition of thisclassic text is geared for the undergraduate student inAgricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine. In response to reader feedback, Dr. Hafez has streamlined andedited the entire text to remove all repetitious and nonessentialmaterial. That means you'll learn more in fewer pages. Plus the seventh editing is filled with features that help yougrasp the concepts of reproduction in farm animals so you'llperform better on exams and in practice: * condensed and simplified tables, so they're easier toconsult * an easy-to-scan glossary at the end of the book * an expanded appendix, which includes graphic illustrations ofassisted reproduction technology Plus, you'll find valuable NEW COVERAGE on all these topics: * Equine Reproduction: expanded information reflecting today'sknowledge * Llamas (NEW CHAPTER) * Micromanipulation of Gametes and In Vitro Fertilization (NEWCHAPTER!) Reach for the text that's revised with the undergraduate in mind:the seventh edition of Hafez's Reproduction in Farm Animals.
Building on the successful structure of the first edition, the second edition of Reproductive Technologies in Farm Animals has been totally updated and revised to provide an up to date account of the key techniques employed in manipulating reproduction in farm animals, including beef and dairy cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, buffaloes, camelids, horses and poultry. A classic introductory text to the subject, the book is based on a comprehensive review of the current literature. This text remains key reading for students in animal science, agriculture, veterinary medicine and biology, and veterinary practitioners and farmers who wish to keep updated on developments in techniques that may be useful in their daily practice.
This textbook provides a detailed view of the different ways in which reproduction in cattle, sheep, pigs and horses can be controlled and manipulated. It is primarily of interest to students of animal science and veterinary medicine, but will also be of use to those who are concerned with the practical aspects of reproduction control, whether in an advisory capacity or in applying techniques on the farm itself. A major objective of the book is to draw attention to information which may be used directly to increase the efficiency of the livestock industry.
This book is the second in a set of four providing a series on controlled reproduction in farm animals. The aim of the series is to provide a general review of the literature dealing with the different ways in which reproduction in the major farm mammals can be controlled and manipulated. The four volumes are effectively an expanded and new edition of a previous work, "Controlled Breeding in Farm Animals" (Pergamon Press, 1983). However, the literature on this subject has expanded so rapidly since the time of the earlier volume, that it is now thought appropriate to publish it in four separate volumes. Buffaloes, goats, deer and camelids have been added to the species covered by the series compared to the previous book. All volumes provide comprehensive reference lists and are fully up-to-date. This second volume focuses on sheep and goats. It will appeal to reproductive physiologists and workers in animal production, animal breeding and veterinary medicine.

For sophomore to senior-level courses in Physiology of Reproduction in Farm Animals, and Applied Techniques in Reproduction; in Animal Science and Preveterinary departments. Also, for use in two-year agricultural curricula and short courses where previous experience is not assumed. Comprehensive, up-to-date, readable- and accessible to undergraduates new to the subject- this text offers unique coverage of both basic physiology as related to reproduction AND the application of physiology to the management of reproduction in livestock species.
This two-volume textbook provides a comprehensive overview on the broad field of Animal Biotechnology with a special focus on livestock reproduction and breeding. The reader will be introduced to a variety of state-of-the-art technologies and emerging genetic tools and their applications in animal production. Also, ethics and legal aspects of animal biotechnology will be discussed and new trends and developments in the field will be critically assessed. The two-volume work is a must-have for graduate students, advanced undergraduates and researchers in the field of veterinary medicine, genetics and animal biotechnology. This first volume mainly focuses on artificial insemination, embryo transfer technologies in diverse animal species and cryopreservation of oocytes and embryos.
Anatomy and endocrinology of cow reproduction. Puberty, oestrus and pregnancy. Measures of reproductive performance. Infertility in cows. The role of nutrition in cattle reproduction. Lactetional anoestrus and the effect of weaning. Reproductive herd Health programmes.
Reproduction in Buffalo –The first book of its kind: discusses reproduction, both natural and assisted, of animals in general and buffalo in particular. It explains everything from oogenesis, IVF and cloning to stem cell and transgenic technology. The book will not only be useful to graduate and postgraduate students of Reproductive Biology but the researchers, teachers, clinicians and those who marvel at the most mysterious process of nature– Reproduction, will find it exciting.
