This comprehensive volume focuses on recent trends and new technologies used in the management of

reproduction in major farm animals, focusing on both males and females of bovine, equine, and porcine

species. With chapters written by scientists who specialize in their respective topics, the volume

presents a selection of different technologies that have been developed to assure reproductive success

by improving reproductive efficiency, generating germplasm banks, and maintaining genetic diversity in

cattle, horses, and pigs.

In the last decade, reproductive technologies in veterinary medicine have progressed considerably,

providing high profitability to livestock farms. This book provides basic and applied information on the

most used reproductive technologies in bovine, equine, and porcine species for academics, scientists,

and veterinarians. The volume discusses reproductive and postpartum management, reproductive

ultrasound, sperm management, egg retrieval, artificial insemination, embryo transfer, nutrition,

genetics, and certain clinical aspects, such as endocrinology and robustness of reproductive systems.
