The importance of high reproductive efficiency in domestic animals is increasing as the demand for food increases, due to the increasing world population. To supply this increased demand for food, the producer must not only produce larger amounts but also produce it more efficiently if he is to prosper in business. More efficient reproduction will reduce the costs to the producer as well as the consumer.
Thus, it seems of importance to determine more precisely than has been done before the amounts and the ratio of the gonadal hormones that are required for high reproductive performance.
