Milk progesterone monitoring in dairy cattle has provided a valuable insight into the reproductive cycle during the post-partum and mating periods (Lamming et al., 1981; Darwash and Lamming, 1997). In this study a similar approach was applied to suckler cows. The objective was to compare the reproductive performance of two contrasting genotypes with a view to improving output from commercial herds. Such herds produce an average of 91 live calves per 100 cows mated (MLC, 1996).
