Genetic and economic optimization of breeding schemes in a population of Karagouniko sheep. I. Methods and assumptions

Genetic and economic optimization of breeding schemes in a population of Karagouniko sheep. I. Methods and assumptions

Epitheorese Zootehnikes Epistemes ( 17): 5-17

Genetic and economic efficiencies of alternative breeding schemes for Karagouniko milk sheep were evaluated. The aggregate breeding value was defined in terms of milk fat yield and number of lambs weaned, their economic values being Dr 2288 per kg and Dr 6640 per lamb respectively.
