The aim of this experiment was to determine the mechanisms involved in changes in the production of cashmere as a consequence of genetic selection. Skin follicle parameters and pattern of cashmere growth were compared in two selected lines of Scot...

The effect of nutrition on fibre growth cycles and medullation in skin of Angora goats was investigated by microscopy of transverse sections of hair follicles. Samples of skin and fleece were taken at regular intervals between August 1989 and Augu...

It has been proposed that the abortions, cold-stress fatalities, and slow growth rates typical of the South African type of Angora goat can be explained by congenital adrenal hypofunction incident to genetic selection for hair production. The aim...

This experiment was conducted to determine whether selection for fleece weight is accompanied by changes in the efficiency of nitrogen utilization, using Angora and Boer goats as models of animals bred for fleece or meat production respectively.

For a few yrs. wool fibers from the hip region have been studied and the no./area found to vary from sheep to sheep; the cross-sectional area is inversely proportional to the no. of fibers/unit area; the length of growth/day is constant for all sh...
