A comparative study of fleece characteristics in Iraqi sheep. 1. Greasy fleece weight, shrinkage percentage and fibre type ratio



A comparative study of fleece characteristics in Iraqi sheep. 1. Greasy fleece weight, shrinkage percentage and fibre type ratio



Egyptian Journal of Animal Production 22(1): 53-61



221 midside wool samples were obtained from Awassi, Arabi, Iraq Kurdi (IK) and Hamdani sheep at government farms (intensive husbandry) and commercial farms (extensive) at each of 7 locations in Iraq. All 5 traits studied were significantly affected by breed.
