Mukesh Sahu, Shiv Prasad, Sunil Kumar, Harihar Prasad Gupta.

The present study was designed to observe the effect of supplementation of PUFA enriched diet on superovulatory response, embryo quality, embryo recovery and conception in cattle. Donor (n=6) and crossbred recipient cows (n=24) were selected and divided into four groups viz; control (no treatment), T-1 (treatment given to recipient only), T-2 (treatment given to donor only) and T-3 (treatment given to both recipient and donor). The superovulatory response, mean ovulation rate ,mean embryo/ova recovered, recovery rate and average transferable embryos was found to be 75% v/s 100%, 12.25 2.70 v/s 12 0.71,3.5 1.54 v/s 7.5 1.60, 28.57% v/s 62.5 % and 50 % v/s 80 % in non-treated (control + T-1) and treated (T-2 + T-3) groups respectively. On the basis of our results, it can be concluded that flax seeds supplementation is effective in increasing above measured parameters following embryo transfer.
