Phenotypic correlations of the characteristics fleece, body weight, skin, follicles and the colour of wool in Merino hoggets



Phenotypic correlations of the characteristics fleece, body weight, skin, follicles and the colour of wool in Merino hoggets



Veterinaria Montevideo 33(136): 5-9



Phenotypic correlations between fleece, liveweight, skin, follicles and colour of wool were determined in 100 Australian Merino hoggets in 1994 in Uruguay. Data were collected on fibre diameter, fibre length, greasy and clean fleece weight, liveweight, strength and compression resistance of fleece, wax and suint percentage, and colour. Wool style (including colour, character, handle, tip and staple) and skin were subjectively evaluated by scores.
