Author(s): Prakash, SBS Yadav, Urmila Pannu, Manju Nehara, Ashish Chopra and Manisha Mehra
Abstract: The data for present investigation were analyzed from records (1994-2011) of Chokla sheep research flock maintained at semi-arid region campus of the Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute (CSWRI), Avikanagar, Rajasthan. The overall least-squares means for greasy fleece weight of clip I was estimated as 0.915±0.017 kg. The effect of sire, period of birth, sex, season of birth and dam’s age was highly significant (p≤0.01) for clip I. The effect of age of shearing as a covariate was highly significant (p≤0.01) for clip I. The heritability estimates from WOMBAT (animal model 1) method for greasy fleece weight at clip I was low to medium.
