Normal vaginal flora of ewes and nannies creates pheremone effect in ram and buck and increases their sexual attraction. In case of any infection in reproductive tract, the structure of normal vaginal flora gets deteriorated. Deterioration of vaginal flora leads to change in chemical stimulants around vaginal surrounding and loss of attraction of females for males. The change of bacterial flora within vagina might affect the reproduction capacity of animal and significantly decreases to the insemination rate by causing sperm breaks in the reproductive organ even if the detected bacteria are not pathogenic. Since the basis of sustainability in the livestock stockbreeding is the effectiveness of fertility, knowing regular vaginal microbiota and the factors leading a change in this environment has an important role to increase the effectiveness of fertility.
