Abstract

  • Anovulation is a major cause of infertility in mammalian females.

  • Ovarian research in humans is challenging due to the shortage of “normal tissue” that can be obtained from women that are trying to get pregnant.

  • Livestock animals provide valuable resources to investigate the optimal intra-follicular environment required to facilitate folliculogenesis and translate to humans.

  • Different livestock models may be more useful depending on the specific biological process studied.
