The age at first oestrus, or puberty, is affected by th e next ovulation. It has been suggested that this nutrition and season of birth and ranges from increase in FSH secretion, which is unique to the months, with an average of 10 months.

This may, however, be due to failure of in the intensity of heat signs; the manifestations tend the herdsperson to observe the signs rather than a to be more marked in heifers than in cows. However, failure of the cow to show signs. This has been compared with the luteal phase of the cycle.

The ease of pa lpating the m rec- tally will depend upon the size, degree of protrusion and relationship with the corpus luteum. During pro-oestrus and oestrus, the dom inant fo llicle destined to ovulate enlarges, and ovulation occurs when it has attained a size of 1.
On rectal palpation of th e ovaries dur- ing oestrus it is som etimes possible to detect the ripeni n g foll icle as a slightly bulging, smooth, soft area on th e surface of one of them, a lthough it is readily identified using transrectal ultrasonogra- p hy.

Similar variations also occur in the weights of the CI.. Sometimes, the centre of the yellow body is occupied by a cavity Fig. The size of the cavity varies; in the majo rity it is small, averaging 0.
It is occupied by yellow fluid. In the case just described, there is evidence of ovu- lation by the presence of a pinhead depression in the centre of the projection from the surf.
This serves to differentiate th e CL from the abnormality of the cow's ovary: luteinizatio n of the walls of the fol- licle without ovulation. Projection of the corpus luteum from t he surface of the ovary As the CL enlarges, it tends to push itself out of the ovary, stretching the surface o f the latter, until by the time it attains maximum development it often fo rms a distinct projectio n.
Th e degree and type of this pro- jection vary. In the majority it is a distinct bulge about 1 em in diameter with a clear-cut constriction where it joins the general contour of the ovary. In other cases it is nipple-like Fig. In a third type the Fig. C 8-mode ultrasound image of the same ovary showing a speckled area greater part of the ovary.
It would seem that the type corresponding to the corpus luteum cl and the mid-cycle of protrusion that develops depends on th e extent of follicle f. Skip to content.
