Genetic parameters for ultrasound scan and wool traits at yearling and hogget age in Merino sheep



Genetic parameters for ultrasound scan and wool traits at yearling and hogget age in Merino sheep



Application of new genetic technologies to animal breeding Proceedings of the 16th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Noosa Lakes, Queensland, Australia, 25-28 September 2005: 32-35



The Australian Merino is the most important genetic resource for the wool and the lamb and sheep meat industries of Australia. In this paper estimated genetic parameters for ultrasound scan and wool traits at yearling and hogget age are presented for Merino sheep.
