Heat stress has the potential to substantially reduce ewe and ram fertility at temperatures ≥ 32oC (see review by van Wettere et al 2021). Many Australian flocks are mated during months when hot temperatures are expected, but there is a lack of evidence from field data quantifying the conditions when hot temperatures reduce fertility. This study evaluates the potential for heat stress to have contributed to the reproductive failure observed in an experimental flock.

|Other||ON BEHALF OF THE AUSTRALIAN ASSOCIATION OF ANIMAL SCIENCES, WE INVITE YOU TO CAIRNS AND THE 34TH AAAS CONFERENCE: ANCHORING KNOWLEDGE, EXPLORING THE ANIMAL SCIENCE ECOSYSTEMS.|
For science to have an impact – for knowledge to be anchored – it needs to be ratified, shared, applied and reviewed. The 2022 AAAS conference program is being thoughtfully prepared entice innovation and blue-sky thinking, and to pull our knowledge and expertise together to make our science impactful to all animal industries. We are not only at the cutting edge of animal science, but we are also in a unique position to help shape the future direction of agricultural and ecological services.
Join us in Cairns for thought-provoking keynote speakers, tropically-enhanced networking, and field tours that showcase two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Wet Tropics Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.
