The breeding scheme of the Karagouniko sheep in Greece



The breeding scheme of the Karagouniko sheep in Greece



Cahiers Options Mediterraneennes 11: 61-65



There are approximately 200 000 Karagouniko sheep in central Greece. A genetic improvement programme for the breed has been set up by the Karkitsa Animal Genetic Improvement Centre in association with a local AI centre and the Extension Services of the Ministry of Agriculture. The semen of 20 performance-tested young rams is used to inseminate 4000 ewes annually in a nucleus population of 20 000 milk-recorded animals.
