The impact of copper (Cu) deficiency on the reproduction and efficacy of new biotechnologies is reviewed and some aspects of the action mechanism are identified. Hypocuprosis is the second most frequent mineral deficiency found in grazing ruminants in Cuba, affecting more than 30% of the cattle. Routine diagnosis in the animal is based on the predictive cupremia value in population studies, th ...

Early gestation diagnosis using estradiol benzoate was carried out to stimulate the sexual activity of crossbred Saanen x Criolla goats during the mating period. Once the diagnosis was made oestrus females were placed in direct contact with animals with more than 100 days of lambing to stimulate oestrus onset in these latter. Results demonstrate that 38 % of goats showed oestrus between 1 and ...
