AbstractFull Text

Introduction: In most mammals, each hair follicle is a mammalian skin organ that produces hair and controls the hair growth cycle. The hair follicle is central to most economically important fiber growth in livestock. Previous studies have shown that changes in the level of genes expression play a...

AbstractFull Text

The creole sheep breed is distributed in almost all Argentinean provinces. Generally, by visual appreciation we can distinguish the existence of two types of fleece, one of them compact, close and short, and the other one more open, with presence of long fibres, being more common that the producers ...

AbstractFull Text

We predicted genetic gains for reducing breech flystrike incidence (FSI) based on selection using modified MERINOSELECT indexes. Predicted genetic reductions in FSI after 10 years of selection were larger when the heritability of the trait was moderate (as in a summer rainfall environment) than...

AbstractFull Text

Gastrointestinal parasites constitute a serious problem in many sheep production systems. Two studs, Anderson Rams in Australia and Talitas Rams in Uruguay, have been selecting for resistance for about two decades with considerable success. We used semen from Anderson Rams in Uruguay and compared...
