Factors affecting birth weight and weaning weight in Rambouillet and its crosses with Australian Merino sheep



Factors affecting birth weight and weaning weight in Rambouillet and its crosses with Australian Merino sheep



Journal of Research, Birsa Agricultural University 2(2): 183-186



Birth and weaning weights of 2937 Rambouillet, 765 Rambouillet X Australian Merino (AM), 425 Rambouillet X (Rambouillet X AM) and 162 F2 Rambouillet X AM lambs were analysed. Rambouillet lambs had lower values than crossbreds for birth weight (2.98 vs. 3.02-3.07 kg; P<0.05) and weaning weight (21.77 vs. 22.13-22.19 kg; P<0.05).
