Between-flock genetic differences in 40 Merino studs

  • 1992
  • Issue: 6
  • Volume: 22
D.G. Poggenpoel and C.A. van der Merwe Page: 175 - 180

Breeding values of production traits, relative to a genetic control flock, were estimated for 40 registered Merino studs. Breeding values, expressed as a percentage deviation from the control flock, varied from -16.7 to 31.2 for body mass, -6.4 to 28.1…
