Fertility, embryo survival and litter size in lines of Targhee sheep selected for weaning weight or litter size



Fertility, embryo survival and litter size in lines of Targhee sheep selected for weaning weight or litter size



Journal of Animal Science 62(4): 895-904



The CR, prenatal survival and litter size were recorded for 444 ewes of 2 age groups from 5 lines of grade Targhee sheep: 2 unselected control lines, 2 lines that had been selected for 20 yr for increased 120-day body weight, and a line that had been selected for 18 yr for increased multiple births (T). Line T was equal or superior to the control lines in CR, prenatal survival and litter size in both age groups, although most of the differences were not significant.
