Abd AA, Younis LS, Aldeen NN., Anti-Mullerian hormone and age in female buffaloes (Bubalus Bubalis), Onl J Vet Res., 22 (8):687-691, 2018. We determined blood ELISA Anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) as a measure of fertility in 50 female buffaloes of different ages collected during July, August and September in Wasit, Iraq. Seventeen buffaloes were dentally aged at 7-15 months, twenty at 2-5 years and thirteen between 6 and 10 years. We found highest levels of AMH in those aged 2-5 years (P≤ 0.05) with 140.52 7.32 pg/ml, and lower in young subjects aged 7-15 months (40.65 2.75 pg/ml,) or oldest (91.125.66 pg/ml).
