Abstract: Endometrial histopathology was studied in 16 cows at 35-50 days post-partum period including 8 cows treated for RFM (Group I) and 8 normally calved cows (Group II). Endometrial biopsy was taken from all the experimental animals, to study the histopathological changes of the endometrium before (at the time of animal selection) and after treatment (at AI). Before treatment in NC cows, the uterine endometrium was intact and multiple glandular acini were noticed. RFM treated cows, revealed discontinuation of the endometrial epithelial lining and loss of epithelial cells in the endometrial glands. After treatment, NC cows showed active proliferation of epithelial cells with intactness of endometrium. RFM treated cows showed proliferations of epithelial lining of endometrium and engorged blood vessels with evidence of active glandular acini of the endometrial glands. The  rst service, second service and overall conception rates observed in this study were 37.50, 25.00 and 50.00 and 25.00, 37.50 and 62.50 per cent in group I and II, respectively. A comparable conception rate of 50.00 per cent vs 62.50 percent in group I of RFM treated cows with that of group II of NC cows was observed in the present study. Hence, it is concluded that increased conception rate in post-partum NC than the RFM treated cows positively correlated with the healthy endometrial lining and glandular development.
