Heritability of fertility of Merino ewes, and interaction with type of birth






Veterinarski Glasnik 40(1): 53-58

Heritability of fertility of Merino ewes, and interaction with type of birth

Data were obtained on 759 lambings of 253 Merino ewes, the daughters of 15 rams. The hsuperscript 2 of age at 1st conception was 0.06+or-0.08 for the whole population and 0.26+or-0.21 for the ewes which had been born as twins, and the hsuperscript 2 of age at 1st lambing was 0.06+or-0.08 and 0.28+or-0.22 resp.
