Fetal and placental growth, and fetal and maternal urea synthesis in late gestation, were studied in 2-year-old Corriedale ewes on a maintenance ration (M) except when subjected to moderate dietary restriction from day 50 to day 100 (RM), day 100 to day 135 (MR) or day 50 to day 135 (RR). In comparison with fetuses of ewes maintained throughout the experiment (MM), RR fetuses were smaller and RM fetuses were larger whereas MR fetuses were unaffected; all restrictions were associated with… CONTINUE READING
