Effect of Super-OV hormone on multiple births in Kurdish ewes
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
Induction of super-ovulation in ewes requiring the production of multiple ova at a single estrus was used to determine if the commercial follicle-stimulating hormone (Super-OV, Canada) is effective in increasing multiple births in ewes. Thirty-two (32) Kurdish ewes were used for the study during a period of 12 months. Intra-muscular injection of Super-OV into 24 ewes with three different doses 13.12, 26.25 and 52.5 IU in three equal groups of 8 ewes in each group caused 14.28, 33.33 and 62.5 percent twin births respectively. None of the ewes in control group that received no Super-OV hormone had twin birth. According to this result, use of 52.5 IU Super-OV caused twin birth that was statistically significant (P=0.04) and use of low doses (13.12 and 26.25 IU) caused twin birth that was not statistically significant.
