Effect of seasons and body positions on the assessments of colour, handle, lustre, bulk and kemp in Barki fleece



Effect of seasons and body positions on the assessments of colour, handle, lustre, bulk and kemp in Barki fleece



Egyptian Journal of Animal Production 30(1): 71-81



Wool samples were taken at 3-month intervals from 3 dorsal positions (withers, back and rump) and 3 lateral positions (shoulder, midside and britch) in 29 Barki ewes. The wool was of medium lustre and handle with few kemp fibres. Yellow discolouration was extensive and scouring had little effect on colour. Jan. samples were whiter, softer, more lustrous, more bulky and had the least kemp fibres than wool sampled at other seasons.
