Abstract

Under the extensive conditions encountered in the dry tropics of Australia mating in the beef herd ususally commences immediately after the onset of the wet season. Bulls are often mated only four to six weeks after suffering a period of liveweight loss. This experiment looked at the liveweight change and reproductive responses when bulls were subject to two different planes of nutrition.
