Abstract
Data were obtained from 952 one-yr-old Mutton Merinos in 1955-59. Greasy wool yield was found to be correlated with body weight (r = + 0.11). Curvilinear and linear regressions did not differ significantly in the body weight range of 45-75 kg. ; within these limits each kg. increase in body weight corresponded to an increase of 0.0167 kg. wool.
