Abstract: The reproductive performance of a beef breeding herd is frequently the most important factor affecting the success of any beef production enterprise (Topps 1977) and herd fertility is governed by nutrition (Entwistle 1984) as influenced by rainfall. The lifetime fertility of a breeder is said to be influenced by date of conception as a heifer (Donaldson 1968) and there are divergent opinions on optimum time for conception. The aim of this study was to determine the influence of time of conception as a heifer and rainfall patterns on the long-term conception pattern of a herd.
