Selection for reproductive rate in Rambouillet sheep. II. Correlated genetic changes in ewe body weight, fleece weight and fleece grade



Selection for reproductive rate in Rambouillet sheep. II. Correlated genetic changes in ewe body weight, fleece weight and fleece grade



Proceedings, Western Section, American Society of Animal Science and Western Branch Canadian Society of Animal Science 40: 21-23



Data were analysed on lines of Rambouillet sheep selected for high or low reproductive rate and on a randombred Rambouillet and a registered Targhee flock. Breeding values were estimated by mixed model procedures with fixed effects of yr of birth and age of ewe and a random permanent environmental effect of the ewe.
