|Title:||Analysis of weaner survival in Australian Merino||Contributor(s):||Walkom, Sam (author) ; Brown, Daniel (author)||Publication Date:||Oct-2016||Publisher:||Animal Genetics and Breeding Unit, University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/29173||Abstract:||Weaner mortality is a significant animal welfare issue and can have a large negative impact on the productivity of a sheep flock in both the long- and short-term. High weaner mortality reduces the number of potential replacements available for selection into the breeding flock, thus reducing the selection intensity and potential rate of genetic improvement (Hatcher et al. 2008).||Publication Type:||Research Report For An External Body - Industry Report||Field of Research (FoR) 2008:||070201 Animal Breeding||Field of Research (FoR) 2020:||300305 Animal reproduction and breeding||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO) 2008:||830311 Sheep - Wool||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO) 2020:||100413 Sheep for wool||HERDC Category Description:||NTRO - Z21 Research Report For An External Body - Industry Report||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||Extent of Pages:||42|
