AbstractFull Text

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of non-genetic factors on the characteristics of pre-weaning growth in sheep under tropical conditions. The sex of the lamb, the type of birth (single, multiple) and parity number on the birth weight, weaning weight and preweaning daily gain of ...

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

The objective of this research were to study the linkage disequilibrium (LD) pattern, determine haplotype block structure and genome wide haplotype association study in Zandi sheep for identifying the genomic region associated with preweaning (AGW) and postweaning daily gain (PWG). A total of 96...

Abstract

The objective of the present study was to quantify the impact of the systematic environmental effects of both birth and rearing type on pre-weaning lamb live weight, and to evaluate the repercussions of inaccurate recording of birth and rearing type on subsequent genetic evaluations. A total of...

Abstract

The modern consumer of sheep meat requires uninterrupted market supply with qualitatively standardized meat, without excess fat and with high tenderness, which has encouraged producers to slaughter young sheep. A lamb's diet during the pre-weaning phase was discussed in this review because it is of ...

Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the influence of age of dam (AD), type of birth (TB) and age of the lamb (AL) on growth measured in terms of body weight (BW) and average daily gain (ADG) in intermediate stages between birth and weaning of the Pelibuey lambs. Twenty-two Pelibuey ewes...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to determine the influence of gender on pre-weaning growth, yield and weight of primal cuts of the carcass of Blackbelly × Pelibuey lambs. 16 twin lambs were used. The lamb gender was the fixed factor. The variables evaluated were: body weight at birth and at weaning,...
