ABSTRACT Elevated coumestrol levels in lucerne (Medicago sativa L.) can reduce the reproductive performance of ewes. A model to predict coumestrol content of lucerne between summer and late autumn was developed to assess the risk of a crop having elevated levels. Data from previous studies have shown fungal damage to be the major contributor to coumestrol levels, but the fungal infestation levels that can cause a risk to reproduction in sheep are difficult to quantify. A number of variables… Expand
