Abstract

An evaluation of the subjective categorization of hair quality pelt traits in Karakul lambs.

Subjective data on lustre of pelt, thickness of hair and overall quality score of the pelt of 5187 Karakul lambs were analysed. It was shown that the common practice of analysing subjective scores on the assumption that they are distributed at equally spaced intervals is invalid.
