Sheep crossbreeding in New Zealand : data availability and information gaps.
Data structure in a New Zealand sheep crossbreeding database is described and analysed. Most of the data were for pure and first cross genotypes, mainly in wool and growth traits and in the moreExpand

THE DERIVATION OF THE CROSS-SECTIONAL AREA ALONG WOOL FIBRES FROM OFDA DIAMETER MEASUREMENTS
A unique and theoretically sound method of deriving cross-sectional area along wool fibres is developed. Diameter values are derived from an equation based on an ellipse whose parameters are theExpand

Optimising of the challenge test for the susceptibility of wool to yellow discolouration
The ‘challenge colour test’ to differentiate wools on the basis of propensity to develop yellow discolouration was conceived to assist in the selection of sheep for whiter wool. This paper reportsExpand

The Measurement of the Tuft-withdrawal Force in Machine-made and Hand-knotted Carpet
An investigation is reported in which the tuft-withdrawal forces of five types of knot used in hand-knotted carpet were measured and compared. The results show that the tuft-withdrawal force variesExpand

Staple strength in crossbred wool : the sensible solution
Two methods for measuring staple strength in crossbred wool are compared. One measures the force to break a staple with a cross-sectional area at the point of break equivalent to 2 ktex linearExpand

Quantitative genetic studies on wool yellowing in Corriedale sheep. 1. Wool yellowing susceptibility and wool production traits—genetic parameter estimates
The potential for the reduction of wool yellowing susceptibility (YPC) in Corriedale sheep via selection was examined. The heritabilities of YPC and greasy fleece weight (GFW) and clean fleece weightExpand
