For 30 German Mutton Merino females in Chile, body weight at 5 and 18 mth of age averaged 25.45 and 42.53 kg resp., and greasy fleece weight 1.22 and 2.54 kg. Body weight was not significantly correlated with fleece weight, nor were fleece weight and body weight at 5 mth significantly correlated with the respective weights at 18 mth.
