A ram-classing lattice for a ram breeding flock

A ram-classing lattice for a ram breeding flock

Wool Technology and Sheep Breeding 41(3): 269-280

The ram-classing lattice embodies a structured procedure whereby rams of a breed reared primarily for wool production may be classed taking into account all 4 groups of characters which a breeder encounters. The groups are of characters appraised visually (group V), of characters resulting from identified genes (group G), of characters employed in a selection index (group I), and of characters assessed by measurement other than those in a selection index (group M).
