Abstract

Oestrogenic pastures in Australia have been found to affect fertility in cattle especially when
pastures have been affected by pest infestations or other stressors such as low rainfall. Phytooestrogens are structurally similar to mammalian oestrogens and can produce similar physiologic
effects (Mlynarczuk et al. 2011). Early embryonic loss may be as high as 24-29% in cattle fed on a
legume pasture (Shore et al. 1998). Exposure to multiple phyto-oestrogen compounds simultaneously
may critically alter the function of the bovine reproductive system and embryo development.
