In conclusion, it seems likely that the primary endocrine response induced in anovular ewes by the introduction of rams is the rapid rise in the frequency of LH pulses. This begins the normal sequence of events which lead to ovulation. The roles of prolactin and FSH are not clear, but changes in the levels of these gonadotrophins are probably not important in determining whether the ewe will ovulate.
