Abstract

TO work efficiently in commercial flocks, rams must mate with and fertilise relatively large numbers of ewes, often over short periods of mating.

The importance of mating behaviour is obvious. Despite this, little is known of the mating behaviour of rams under commercial situations.

A series of experiments in 1968 at Badgingarra Research Station was designed to investigate this and other aspects of mating behaviour.
