The study of maternal behavior in sheep, can not be conceived without investigating of the anterohypofizary hormones implication in the expression (direct or indirect) of this type of behavior, as, for example, prolactin, FSH and ACTH. Thus, the literature indicates that prolactin, regardless of species, acting on the central nervous system, inducing and maintaining maternal behavior. It also initiates and maintains the mammary gland secretion, this effect is exercised only in terms of its prior action of estrogen and progesterone. To approach the role of prolactin in the induction and maintenance of maternal behavior and in the initiation and development of milk secretion in sheep, we used the antiprolactinic drug preparation: Bromocriptine. Thus, Bromocriptine was series administered in sheep, in doses of 1 mg - 2.2 mg/animal/day, from 4 days before birth up to 3 days after birth, following the effect of bromocriptine on weight gain in lambs, but also on the main biochemical constituents of blood.
