A study of the efficiency of wool growth and its relation to fleece weight of grazing sheep
(Canterbury Agricultural College, University of New Zealand, 1961)
Fleece weight differences between individual sheep within a flock is a common feature. Extent of this variation has been calculated in Merino and allied breeds in terms of coefficient of variation and found to be 10 to 17 ...

The wool follicle papilla which invaginates the follicle bulb at its proximal end has been suggested by Rudall (1955) as being the “chief determiner of the characteristics of the fibre produced”. It is variable size and ...
A study of the importance of cell size in quantitative wool production : A thesis submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Agricultural Science with Honours in the University of Canterbury
(Lincoln College, University of Canterbury, 1965)
Sheep differ in their inherent abilities to convert feed protein into wool keratin (Marston, 1948; Ferguson, Carter and Hardy 1949; Clark, Keshary, Coop and Henderson 1965). Animals processing a high efficiency of wool ...
