Contents For 6 months, 10 adult Saanen crossbred
goats were fed undernutrition diet (70% maintenance), and finally
five goats were refed for 6 weeks with 150% maintenance. In all animals
oestrus was synchronized using 45 mg FGA vaginal sponge for 1l days,
300 IU eCG and 50 µg cloprostenol 48 h prior to sponge removal.
From oestrus onset, during a 24-h period, blood samples were collected
for oestradiol and NEFA assay.
