Abstract: Determining the mode of inheritance of the undesirable Australian Piebald condition of Merino sheep is highly relevant to both conventional breeding practice and to current attempts to identify the gene(s) responsible. Despite attracting the interest of animal breeders over decades, there is a scarcity of data and this study shows that the inheritance cannot be conclusively determined on this basis. Considering a range of possible inheritance scenarios will ensure that the gene discovery experiment is designed optimally.
