Abstract:

Plasma gonadal steroid (estradiol-17β, progesterone in females and testosterone in males) levels were estimated in Gir and Jaffarabadi breeds at different ages. Estradiol-17β levels at 36 m age were significantly (P<0.05) higher than that at 3 and 6 m age but were non-significantly higher than that at 24 m age. Progesterone levels at 36 m of age were significantly (P<0.05) higher than that at lower ages upto 24 m, indicating that the animals reached maturity between 24 and 36 m age. No significant variation was found in the plasma testosterone levels upto 12 m age.
