AbstractFull Text

Aim: The aim of this study was to estimate the heritability, genetic and phenotypic correlations, and the genetic trends for pre-weaning growth traits including the birth weight (BWT), weaning weight (WWT), pre-weaning daily gain (PWDG), and weaning age (WA) in Awassi lambs. Materials and Methods:...

Abstract

Data collected on 1388 Awassi × Menz 25-50% 1(AM 25-50%), 80 Awassi × Menz 75% (AM2 75%) cross breed and 3482 Menz (M3) lambs collected from 1993 through 2004 were analyzed for survival and growth from birth to weaning (90 days) at Sheno Agricultural Research Center. AM 25-50% and AM cross breed...

Abstract

The effects of genetic and non-genetic factors on preweaning survivability of 3678 Menz (M) lambs born to 85 sires and 3021 Awassi × Menz (A × M) crossbred lambs of 28 sires during 1993-2000 at the Amed Guya and Sheno centres in Ethiopia were studied. Genetic group, sex, parity, farm, season, year...

Abstract

3500 records of reproduction in a 7-yr period of Awassi sheep managed semi-intensively at the Kraim Research Centre were analysed. Pregnancy duration averaged 151.7±2.17 days, and was not significantly affected by litter size, although it was slightly longer in ewes carrying single lambs than in...

Abstract

Data on growth and body measurements from records of 182 Awassi lambs, born during 1982-83, were analysed. Equations were estimated to predict body weight and total body weight gain from the measurements studied. Generally, 50% of the variation in birth weight, weaning weight and total body weight...

Abstract

Heterosis for preweaning body weight was studied using 49 Awassi, 16 Chios and 39 Awassi × Chios lambs. Heterosis for body weight was significant at 1, 2 and 3 months of age, but not at birth. The highest heterosis (15.1%) was for body weight at 2 months of age. Litter size averaged 1.46, 1.01 and...

Abstract

The study was conducted on 2957 lambs born from the year 1967 to 1971. Mortality rate was higher in males (8.83%) than in females (8.69%). Single lambs showed lower (8.11%) mortality rate than twins (10.57%). Lambs with higher birth weight had better chance of survival. Lambs born during the months ...
