A preliminary report on the growth of Javanese thin-tail sheep and their crosses with Suffolk, Polled Dorset and Wiltshire Horn rams

, : A preliminary report on the growth of Javanese thin-tail sheep and their crosses with Suffolk, Polled Dorset and Wiltshire Horn rams. Proceedings of the Australian Society of Animal Production 14: 629

For 26 Javanese thin-tailed (JT), 17 Suffolk X JT, 38 Poll Dorset X JT, and 29 Wiltshire Horn X JT lambs which survived to weaning, birth weight averaged 2.3, 2.9, 2.6 and 2.7 kg resp., weaning weight (13 wk of age) 16.0, 18.6, 18.4 and 18.9 kg, and 22-wk body weight 24.6, 31.2, 30.8 and 30.1 kg. The standard deviations for the 3 traits were 0.7, 4.7 and 4.1 kg resp.
