Low reproductive rates are the major problem of the sheep industry of tropical Queensland. Traditionally animals are joined during the annual spring drought so that ewes will lamb in autumn when nutrition is adequate. Conception rates during this period are low (Entwistle 1972), however any attempt to change the time of joining requires a knowledge of ovulation rates at other times of the year.
