Abstract

Superovulation, embryo recovery and transfer were attempted in 19 dromedary camels of about 6-10 years of age and having calved at least once. Superovulation was done using two commercially available porcine FSH preparations, FSH-I (11 donors) and FSH-2 (8 donors) during a luteal phase created by inducing ovulation with hCG. The superovulatory response was assessed by ultrasonography. The embryo recovery was attempted non-surgically in sitting position on day 8 and 7 after first mating in one FSH-I and one FSH-2 group, respectively. Considerable individual variation in response to the superovulatory stimulus was observed. No significant difference was observed between the two groups in terms of superovulatory response and embryo recovery (P> 0.05). In total 30 embryos were recovered from 17 donors (1.51 embryos/donors). Recipients were synchronized with donors using hCG. Eight embryos were transferred, resulting in two pregnancies and live births. Key words: camel, Camelus dromedarius, embryo, embryo transfer, superovulation
