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.
