  • Grazing ewes on lucerne crops that contain elevated coumestrol concentrations before and during their mating period can decrease ovulation rate, which results in fewer multiple birth lambs. In this experiment, the ovulation rate of ewes grazing a moderately oestrogenic (29.1 ± 2.88 mg coumestrol/kg DM) lucerne crop for 6 weeks was compared with those transferred to grass pasture for 1 or 3 weeks, and a Control group on grass throughout. Ordinal regression predicted an exponential relationship… CONTINUE READING
