Teat length bioassays of a range of legume swards and comparisons between temporary infertility, teat length and uterine weight responses



Teat length bioassays of a range of legume swards and comparisons between temporary infertility, teat length and uterine weight responses



Aust. J. exp. Agric. Anim. Husb 8(35): 661-67



(i) Increase in uterine wt. of ovariectomized Merino ewes and (ii) increase in teat length of Merino wethers in response to grazing clover pasture were compared statistically as assay methods of oestro-genic potency of the pasture and potential antifertility effect. (i) was only slightly better than (ii), which was more convenient and less costly as it did not involve ovariectomy and slaughter of the animal.
