  1. * Pair-wise comparisons between stage and pregnancy status were determined to be statistically significant at P < 0.05
  2. a Fecal samples were obtained from 32 beef heifers. Individuals that established a pregnancy (n = 16) and those that did not (n = 16) were sampled before breeding (stage 1) and during the first trimester (stage 2)
