Abstract



The reproductive performances of aceh cattle in extreme environment is supported by its reproductive capacity system. This research was
conducted to study there productive system of aceh cattle by examining morphometric and histological characteristics of aceh cow ovaries during
the estrous cycle. Fifteen Aceh mature cows during estrous cycle, with 200-300 kg of body weight were used in this study. Samples were taken
from slaughter house in Banda Aceh Municipality, Aceh Province. The ovaries were observed morphometry, then fixed in Bouin solution and
processed histologically. Ovaries were stained with hematoxylin and eosin to observe the morphometric characteristics of ovarian histology. The
data obtained are presented in the form of tables and figures, and analyzed descriptively. Aceh has a cow ovarian morphometry and histologycal
structure during different phases of the estrous cycle occurs.
