About this episode

For almost two decades, Dr Gary Williams and his graduate students at Texas A&M AgriLife Research/Texas A&M University have worked to unveil the mysteries of puberty in young female cattle. With this research, Dr Williams and his former graduate student and current faculty colleague, Dr Rodolfo Cardoso, have come to the realisation that puberty is not only affected by events that take place a few months beforehand, but it is also affected by events during pregnancy and early development.
