Implications • Anovulation is a major cause of infertility in mammalian females. • Ovarian research in humans is challenging due to the shortage of "normal tissue" that can be obtained from women that are trying to get pregnant. • Livestock animals provide valuable resources to investigate the optimal intra-follicular environment required to facilitate folliculogenesis and translate to humans. • Different livestock models may be more useful depending on the specific biological process studied.
