Characterisation of genes associated with sheep growth and carcass traits
(Lincoln University, 2014)
Animal growth and carcass composition are of commercial importance for sheep meat production. Growth and fat deposition are affected by both environmental factors and genetic factors. Genetic selection to produce leaner, ...
A study of wool production parameters of genetically different Merino wethers run together
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1986)
In 1984 a Merino wether trial at Matakanui station, Omakau, Central Otago, was set up to demonstrate the production possible from well-bred Merino wethers. Thirty teams of ten sheep from a variety of environmental and ...
Analysis of the keratin associated protein gene KRTAP6-1 in New Zealand Wiltshire sheep
(Lincoln University, 2016-11-14)
Keratin associated proteins (KAPs) and keratins (Ks) are key elements in the structure of wool fibre and determine the phenotypes seen in sheep. The abundance of the KAP gene family (KRTAP-n) varies in wool fibre. Variation ...
