Max; There are some pretty good discussions on the Health and Nutrition page of this site concerning Freemartins. Look for them posted by "Dale" on 12 and 13 March, 2001. Also, look for a posting on the "beginners board" for "genes" posted about 29, Jan. 2001. The response by "Jason" is probably the best I have read on the subject of freemartins. There is another extrensive article in my files but I don't have the site handy. I will be glad to look it up if you want, just drop me an e-mail and I'll get right back to you. Good Luck,
