The importance of yield in Merino wool production

The importance of yield in Merino wool production

Fmg S. Afr, 10: 244-245

UNLIKE areas in the Union differ in wool production, moreover there are yield variations among sheep of the same flock. The greasy fleece weight is no indication of the clean-scoured fleece weight. This is of importance in selection. Two rams both producing 11 lb. of clean wool had greasy fleece weights of 31 and 20 lb. ; the breeder would be inclined to breed from the heavier-fleeced animal, although the latter is no better than the ram with the lighter fleece.
