Uses and abuses of Merino wether comparisons



Uses and abuses of Merino wether comparisons



Wool Technology and Sheep Breeding 36(4): 108-110



Data from comparisons of 22 wether bloodlines were analysed. All except 1 comparison had high correlations of traits measured in 1 year with those measured in another year. There were significant differences between bloodlines for all 5 traits tested.
