Artificial manipulation of photoperiod: after winter anestrus and the vernal transition, cyclicity naturally starts sometime in the spring, when breeding can begin. Sheep are seasonal breeders in temperate regions, meaning that they experience distinct periods of sexual activity or inactivity annually therefore, it is necessary to understand the biological background to seasonal reproduction and how to manipulate this for the benefit of farm management.
Abstract techniques of modern biology such as molecular cloning of genes, gene transfer, genetic manipulation of animal and plant embryo transfer, genetic manipulation of rumen microbes, chemical and biological treatment of low quality animal feeds for improved nutritive value, genetically engineered immunodiagnostic and immunoprophylactic agents as well as veterinary vaccines, inter alia. Manipulation of reproduction in animals one of the natural laws of life is to be many from one which is possible through reproduction in animals sexual reproduction occurs through fertilization of female gametes (ova) by male gametes (sperms) followed by fusion of two nuclei coming from two gametes. Ultimate control of reproduction of farm animals may involve manipulation of the frequency of conception,number of offspring per conception, and the genotype,including the sex of the offspringsuch manipulation will. Selective breeding many species of animals and plants have been improved or otherwise modified by the commonsense application of knowledge of the process of reproduction, notably by simply breeding from chosen individuals.

The user has complete control over reproduction, allowing them to freely alter and manipulate it reproduction is the process is the process in which living organisms called offspring are sub-power of fertility manipulation. In animals, sexual reproduction occurs through fertilization of female gametes (ova) by male gametes (sperms) followed by fusion of two nuclei coming from two gametes thus sexual reproduction maintains the genetic traits of organism. For example, an animal produces about 4-5 offsprings in her life through normal reproduction, whereas through ivf technology the same can produce 50-80 offsprings in her life therefore, the ivf technology holds a great promise because a large number of animals may be produced and gene pool of animal population can also be improved.
