NOTES ON PARTURITION IN THE SHEEP

in Reproduction

A series of experiments has recently been carried out in ewes at the end of pregnancy in which parturition was monitored by the recording of intra-uterine pressure changes (Hindson, Schofield, Turner & Wolff, 1965; Hindson, Schofield & Turner, 1967, 1968). Some further observations have since been made which are relevant to the conclusions drawn; this paper is by way of being a postscript to the previous publications and carries the additional information.

The frequency of the intra-uterine pressure waves associated with parturition in this series was expressed as time per six waves. Since frequency can also be
