|Title:||Heritabilties for skin follicle traits and their correlations with production traits in Australian fine wool Merino sheep||Contributor(s):||Asadi Fozi, Masood (author); Van Der Werf, Julius Herman (author) ; Swan, Andrew (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4494||Abstract:||Genetic parameters for skin follicle traits, wool traits, body weight and number of lambs weaned per ewe joined were estimated for fine wool Merinos. Total, secondary and primary follicle number index, which are based on skin surface area and skin follicle density, were considered. Heritability estimates for total, secondary and primary follicle number index were 0.45, 0.46 and 0.38 respectively. The genetic correlations between total follicle number index and clean fleece weight, mean fibre diameter, staple strength, coefficient of variation of fibre diameter, body weight and number of lambs weaned were 0.16, -0.67, 0.00, 0.22 and 0.22, respectively.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||16th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Noosa Lakes, Queensland, Australia, 25th September - 28th September, 2005||Conference Details:||16th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Noosa Lakes, Queensland, Australia, 25th September - 28th September, 2005||Source of Publication:||Application of new genetic technologies to animal breeding: Proceedings of the 16th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, p. 184-187||Publisher:||CSIRO Publishing||Place of Publication:||Collingwood, Queensland||ISSN:||1328-3227||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||830311 Sheep - Wool||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.aaabg.org/livestocklibrary/2005/184asadi_fozi.pdf
