Satish Nain, Devendra Kumar, Bhanu Prakash, Govind Narayan Purohit.


With an objective to evaluate the efficiency of vaginal electrical resistance (VER) measurements in differentiating the stage of the estrous cycle, the VER was recorded in goats (n=62) 12 h before their slaughter and the genitalia were collected to stage the reproductive cycle. Among the genitalia collected, 13 were pregnant and 10, 10, 15, and 14 were in proestrus, estrus, metestrus, and diestrus, respectively. The VER was 37.5±0.81, 36.6±1.14, 47.27±1.82, 51.28±2.45 and 43.54±2.39 Ohms, respectively for the respective stages of proestrus, estrus, metestrus, diestrus, and pregnancy. Significantly lower (P
