|Title:||Implementing selection and optimising flock structures in Merino flocks||Contributor(s):||Kelly, M (author); Swan, Andrew (author); Richards, J (author); Atkins, K (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1098||Abstract:||Optimum flock structure and selection practices can improve the profitability of commercial Merino flocks. This report describes several programs that have been developed by the Sheep CRC to facilitate prediction of the potential effects of alternative flock structures and selection practices. These programs include programs that predict the effects of on-farm fibre measurement, terminal sire mating, proportion of wethers in a flock, simultaneous assortment and lamb growth rate.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||International Journal of Sheep and Wool Science, 54(1), p. 61-65||Publisher:||University of New England||Place of Publication:||Armidale||ISSN:||1832-8679||Field of Research (FOR):||070201 Animal Breeding||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://sheepjournal.une.edu.au/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2574&context=sheepjournal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 163
