Forbes Brien

Publisher: CSIRO Publishing

    Paperback - 2014

This special edition of Animal Production Science focuses on sheep reproduction, with the majority of the papers being work of the Cooperative Research Centre for Sheep Industry Innovation (Sheep CRC). It represents a very significant commitment of scientific and industry resources. The publication continues the close association between Animal Production Science and the Sheep CRC in disseminating scientific knowledge of the highest quality to domestic and international audiences.

The papers summarise the research priorities in sheep reproduction for Australia, based on work carried out as part of the national sheep reproduction R&D strategy, with funding from MLA and AWI. Outcomes indicate that the largest pay-off from research in sheep reproduction is likely to come from improving lamb survival, especially of twins, followed by improvements in reproduction of ewe lambs, ewe survival, conception rates, reproduction from 2-year old ewes and, finally, weaner survival.

This journal special issue will be of particular interest to research scientists, resource managers, agribusiness advisors, as well as farmers, and is essential reading for anyone interested in sheep reproduction and survival.

A second special edition on sheep reproduction, again based largely on work done as part of the Sheep CRC will also be published in Animal Production Science.
