A short term dietary restriction heifer model was developed which induced abrupt onset of anoestrus in some animals (Restricted Anovulatory; RA) while others maintained oestrous cyclicity (Restricted Ovulatory; RO). In addition a third control group (C) received a higher level of normal feeding. Heifers were slaughtered and hypothalamic tissue was collected after 18 days of differential feeding. mRNAseq was performed to examine differential gene expression profiles in hypothalamic tissue between groups.
