|Title:||Skin and muscle protein metabolism in Merinos differing in EBVs for wool growth||Contributor(s):||Li, Li (author); Godwin, Ian Robert (author); Oddy, Hutton (author); Liu, S. (author); Nolan, John Vivian (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3161||Abstract:||In the Australian sheep industry, Estimated Breeding Values (EBVs) are being increasingly used to select Merino sheep for excellence in traits such as high clean fleece weight (CFW), low fibre diameter (FD) and high yearling live weight (YLW). It has been proposed that genetic differences in CFW may be related to skin protein metabolism and that it is sensitive to the level of nutrition (Williams and Morley 1994; Liu et al. 1998). The underlying physiological responses to EBV and plane of nutrition are not well understood.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||International Journal of Sheep and Wool Science, 54(2), p. 70-70||Publisher:||The Australian Sheep Industry CRC||Place of Publication:||Orange (NSW), Australia||ISSN:||1832-8679||Field of Research (FOR):||070204 Animal Nutrition||HERDC Category Description:||C2 Non-Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://sheepjournal.une.edu.au/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2581&context=sheepjournal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 153
