Book • 2nd Edition • Much of the activity in breeding is focused on breed evaluation and utilization. This research has been motivated by increasing interest in more intensive types of production, increasing efficiency of production and evaluation of the Finnsheep. Some breed stud sheep to sell to other studs, some breed to. The objective was to evaluate wool (Dorset and Rambouillet) and hair (Dorper, Katahdin and White Dorper) breeds for their ability to complement Romanov germplasm in two distinct production systems. Rams of the five breeds were mated to Romanov ewes to produce five types of crossbred ewes. Breed XY BREED XY is a web and mobile suite that provides functionalities and processes for breed societies to perform BREEDING BOOK MANAGEMENT, PERFORMANCE TESTING and GENETIC EVALUATION of breeding animals, with the aim of improving the production traits of animals. The preferred choice for all sheep and goat breed societies in Romania! Choice of Breed The most appropriate sheep breed depends upon envi-ronmental conditions, the producer’s desired manage-ment intensity, and personal preference. For accelerated sheep production, it might be necessary to use three or more breeds to develop a ewe flock that exhibits accept-able levels of desirable traits. Accelerated flocks must.

Both breeds were also part of Government-assisted programmes and both benefited from the establishment of a breed society and a national recording and evaluation scheme. This paper reviews the strategies put into place to develop the Dorper sheep and the Improved Boer Goat and discusses aspects that have been improved and could have been. The Flock Books of the breeds are managed by the National Association of Sheep and Goats, known in short as ANOC. In a survey made by Bourfia (, unpublished) for the Sheep and Goat Commission for the European Association of Animal Production, registered ewes and corresponding flocks were presented (Table ). Introduction: There are 11 kinds of wool on one fleece (fine and medium wooled breeds), all differing in value to the end user. According to the American Wool Handbook, no two fleeces, even from the same type of sheep and from the same area, are exactly alike in quality and fleeces are skirted, graded, and sorted, the final wool product will not be as profitable or as consistent. Breed was a significant source of study confirms Dorper sheep can adapt and had performed better in the study BED site and Crossing with local and up grading could gain heaver birth weight than lower blood level. 75 percent F1 progeny was significantly better weight gain than 50 percent under station rearing condition.

upon. It was also agreed that the breed shall be known as the Bapedi sheep, in keeping with the breed’s origin. Description A relatively small framed sheep with a typical symmetrical respiratory type build (flat, shallow body and long legs). The breed is a naturally polled hair sheep with a wedge shaped fat-tail.

The book incorporates sections composed of general review articles and important research findings on the structures and objectives of national sheep industries from many of. Furthermore, some sheep breeds are well suited to survive on sparse desert range that would not be used otherwise. Thus, sheep have the ability to convert the natural forage of these extreme habitats into protein for human uses. We use the proteins produced by sheep in the form of wool and lamb. In the third edition of this very popular book, the Wool Board has tried to portray an accurate picture of the types of sheep kept at the beginning of the 21 st century. Considerable assistance has been given by many breed societies in the production of this publication, for which the Wool Board is very grateful.
