|Title:||Genetic parameters for ultrasound scan and wool traits at yearling and hogget age in Merino sheep||Contributor(s):||Huisman, Abe (author); Brown, Daniel (author)||Publication Date:||2005||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4539||Abstract:||The Australian Merino is the most important genetic resource for the wool and the lamb and sheep meat industries of Australia. In this paper estimated genetic parameters for ultrasound scan and wool traits at yearling and hogget age are presented for Merino sheep. Results indicate that it is possible to breed Merino sheep that perform well for both ultrasound scan and wool characteristics when both are measured.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Details:||16th Conference of the Association for the Advancement of Animal Breeding and Genetics, Noosa Lakes, 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. 32-35||Publisher:||CSIRO Publishing||Place of Publication:||Collingwood, Australia||ISSN:||1328-3227||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||830311 Sheep - Wool||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.aaabg.org/livestocklibrary/2005/032huisman.pdf
