The numbers of primordial follicles in ovaries of ewe lambs, from two groups of Peppin Merinos that had been selected for (T group) and against (0 group) mUltiple births, were estimated at birth, 7 days and 5 months of age. Peripheral plasma and anterior pituitary levels of LH and FSH were determined by radioimmunoassay in the lambs at 5 months of age. These lambs were either entire or unilaterally ovariectomized (hemispayed) at 7 days of age.
