  • Jordan, K.M., A. K. Wurst, E.K. Inskeep, and M. Knights. 2004. Effect of time of GnRH injection relative to ram introduction on the induction of fertile estrus in sheep during the non-breeding season. Journal of Animal Science 82(Suppl. 1):310
  • K.M. Jordan, J.W. Knight, and D.R. Notter. 2007. Ability of ewes to rebreed while lactating in spring. Journal of Animal Science 86(Suppl. 1):394.


  • I am interested in how daylength, lactation, and stress affect reproductive parameters such as endocrine profiles, ovulation rate, and duration of the breeding season. My previous work has focused on investigating how daylength interacts with breed to influence neuroendocrine control of the breeding season in the ewe. Future work will focus on further elucidating seasonal control of reproduction using small animal models such as the golden hamster. I welcome involvement of motivated undergraduate researchers.
