Genetic relationships between Spanish breeds of dairy sheep and 25 breeds from 8 countries

Genetic relationships between Spanish breeds of dairy sheep and 25 breeds from 8 countries

ITEA, Produccion Animal 89A(3): 223-234

Using polymorphisms of 6 enzymes and other proteins in blood, the genetic distances between Spanish Churro, Lacho, Manchega and Spanish Merino sheep and those of 25 breeds from the Netherlands, South Africa, Italy, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Australia and the UK were investigated. The average genetic distance between breeds was 0.04522, ranging from 0.00023 between the Vissana and Gentile de Puglia to 0.22964 between the Spanish Churro and the Friesian.
