Abstract


An investigation carried out to study the effect of superovulatory dose of PMSG on oestrus response in broiler rabbits revealed that PMSG at a dose rate of 150 iu/animal produced cent per cent oestrus response in New Zealand White and Soviet Chinchilla does. The results revealed that a super ovulatory dose of PMSG could be utilized for induction of  oestrus and oestrus synchronization in broiler rabbits.
