From: A prepartum diet supplemented with oilseeds high in oleic or linoleic acid reduced GnRH-induced LH release in dairy cows during second week postpartum

Prepartum diet Mean ± S.E. of follicle diameter (mm)
  Week 1A Week 2A
Control 9.41 ± 1.34 13.90 ± 1.47
Canola 6.40 ± 1.47 13.80 ± 1.47

  1. AWeek1: First week after calving (n = 5 cows per treatment); Week2: Second week after calving (n = 5 or 6 cows per treatment). Follicle size was not influenced by treatment (P = 0.18) or treatment x week interaction (P = 0.45)
