  1. Define reproduction
    • process through which organisms multiply or
    • produce offspring
  2. What are the 2 reproductive processes:
    • 1. Asexual reproduction does not involve male or female gametes, but is rather a division of simple cell organisms
    • 2. Sexual Reproduction involves the mating of the male and the female through copulation
  3. Define embryo
    a fertilized egg
  4. Define parturition
    the act of giving birth
  5. List 4 types of breeder selection:
    • Genetics Select the best characteristic for that breed They are looking for size, depth of bone, movement of animal in order to show that breed at the livestock show.
    • Productivity 
    • Disease Screening – Brucellosis vaccine or testing
    • Soundness – don’t want to breed an immune compromised animal or genetically flawed animal.
  6. 2 Methods of breeding:
    • Natural Cover – One bull per thirty cows. Mostly beef breeds.

  7. Which industry uses AI?
    Dairy but is being used more commonly in beef breeds
  8. Crossbreeding dairy with a beef cow gives
    • more excellent milking ability for calves
    • fewer dystocia problems.
  9. The scrotum is
    the saclike portion of the male reproductive system the remains outside of the body, and contains the testicles and the epididymis.
  10. The scrotum is made up of what three types of tissues:
    • skin
    • Tunica dartos - the muscle tissue that is responsible for raising and lowering the testicles in response to temperature differences.
    • Tunica vaginalis - the tissue that forms the pocket around the testicles once they have descended from the abdominal cavity.
  11. Define Cryptorchidism
    If one or both of the testicles do not descend and are held within the body cavity
  12. Cryptorchidism is commonly seen in what animals?

  15. The testicles produce
    sperm and testosterone
  16. Sperm cells are produced by the
    seminiferous tubules
  17. Testosterone is produced by
    • interstitial cells called Leydig Cells
    • Testosterone is the hormone responsible for producing sperm.
  18. Term for a fully grown steer
  19. Why do you castrate a bull and make it a steer?
    To —create a meat producing animal instead of a reproductive animal.
  20. When is it no loner feasible to castrate a bull?
    When the bull is over 600 lbs because they start putting on bull characteristics
  21. The epididymis is the long coiled tube that is connected to __________. __________ reside inside the tube for maturation and storage. These cells do not move from the tube until __________. Cells that do not leave the tube at that time are then _________________.
    • each of the testicles 
    • Sperm cells 
    • ejaculation during copulation

  22. The urethra is the
    tube that carries urine from the bladder
  23. Accessory glands include the
    • seminal vesicles
    • the prostate gland, and
    • Cowper’s glands.
  24. The seminal vesicles open out into the urethra, and produce
    a fluid that both transports and protects the sperm
  25. The prostate gland is located near the urethra and bladder. It produces
    a fluid that is also mixed with the seminal fluid
  26. Cowper’s glands produce a fluid that travels down the urethra ahead of the seminal fluid. This fluid helps to
    clean and neutralize the urethra, protecting the sperm as it travels
  27. The urethra within the penis is surrounded by a spongy type tissue called ________ that fills with blood when the male is aroused; causing the erection that is necessary for copulation
