Abstract: Self-shedding breeds are an appealing choice for prime lamb producers that want to eliminate the need for shearing. Occurring naturally in Spring, the whole fleece or a significant portion of the fleece can be shed. Assessed through visual shedding scores, the degree of genetic variation in wool-shedding ability exhibited moderate to strong genetic variation in UK and American flocks (Pollot 2011; Matika et al. 2013; Vargas Juardo et al. 2020). This study aims to conduct preliminary genetic analysis of wool-shedding ability in an Australian composite flock.
