The effect of live ewe weight at mating on some reproduction traits in Konya Merino sheep



The effect of live ewe weight at mating on some reproduction traits in Konya Merino sheep



Indian Veterinary Journal 77(8): 683-685



Weights of 258 Konya Merino ewes during September 1998 - May 1999 (Animal Research Institute, Konya, Turkey) were recorded before mating. Ewes were allocated to 6 liveweight categories (<44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64 and >65 kg), where the litter size and the birth weight of their lambs were recorded within 12 hours of lambing.
