Changes of wool fibres and skin histology with age


, : Changes of wool fibres and skin histology with age. Ovtsevodstvo (6): 33-34

For fine/coarse-wooled crossbred ewes with some Lincoln Longwool or Romney Marsh inheritance (20 per group), which had wool quality at birth of 50s, 56s, 58s and 60s, the percentage at 18 months of age with 58s quality was 0, 0, 20 and 30 resp., with 56s quality 0, 65, 65 and 70, with 50s quality 70, 25, 15 and 0, with 48s quality 20, 10, 0 and 0, and with 46s quality 10, 0, 0 and 0.

Research into the mechanisms that control the initiation and development of wool follicles has been severely hampered by the inaccessibility of fetal skin in utero. The aims of this study were to determine whether ovine fetal skin, when grafted on...

Lincoln crossbreds had a lower number of wool fibres per unit of skin area than Romney Marsh crossbreds; the former had thicker skin and greater follicle depth than the latter, and hence longer wool.

The development of black-grey pigmented skin spots and pigmented wool fibres on adult Merino sheep over a 3-year period was assessed. Effects of long-term grazing of oestrogenic pasture and multiple shearing were studied. The number of affected sh...
