Alter prepration of section, the histological structure of follicle were studied by determination of 1 and 2 follicle. Least square means of primary follicle density (pf/mm), secondary follicle density (pf/mm), ratio of secondary to primary follicles (sf/pf), primary follicle number Index (pfni) and secondary follicle number index were estimated to be: 1 .95(+0.045) follicles/mm, 23.291(+ 1.044) follicles/mm, 13. 138(+1 .058), 15.682(+ 1.067), 209.763(+1.044) respectively.
