Seventeen body measurements in a total of 341 adult individuals (61 males and 280 females) in addition to eight udder scores collected during the period of maximum levels of lactation in the 280 females were used to morphologically characterize the Assaf.E breed both in magnitude and variability. Sampling included the two main environmental areas to check if the native dairy sheep breeds, namely Churra and Manchega, leaded to differences in the male-mediated absorption. Standard morphology of… CONTINUE READING
