Title: Phenotypic and genetic parameters for the S.A. strongwool merino strain with an emphasis on skin characters as early indicators of wool productivity / by Jane Adair Hill.

Abstract: Skin and fleece measurements were recorded at different ages for both male and female sheep from the Turretfield Merino Resource Flock and used to estimate the heritability of each trait and the phenotypic and genetic correlations among and between the skin and fleece traits. Generally, the heritability of each trait was high, which indicates that both the fleece and skin traits should respond well to selection.
