Ovulation was inhibited in the bovine following treatment with whole bovine follicular fluid. Ovulation was not inhibited following treatment with either steroid free or protein denatured follicular fluid. However treatment with the combination of steroid free follicular fluid and protein denatured follicular fluid was as effective as whole follicular fluid in inhibiting ovulation. Although steroid free follicular fluid did not inhibit ovulation, two of three animals which recieved this treatment did not form normal corpora lutea, as indicated by palpation and the occurance of ovulation 5 and 6 days after the initial post-treatment ovulation.
