Abstract

Summary An investigation has been conducted to study the source and formation of the androgenic activity of the incubated cow feces. The results indicate that the androgenic activity is dependent upon the presence of two factors: (1) an androgen precursor which is present only in cow feces, and (2) microbial activity which is present both in bull and in cow feces. Apparently, progesterone can serve as a precursor of the androgenic substance.
