Inyangala BAO, Rege JEO, Itulya S. "Genetic and phenotypic parameter estimates of growth traits of the Dorper and Dorper X Red Masai sheep.". 1990. Abstract

Data on 1550 Dorper and Dorper X Masai lambs recorded over a 10-yr period were analysed. The crossbred lambs were from dams having >73.4% Dorper inheritance. The effect of percentage of Dorper inheritance was not significant for birth weight and for most measures of body weight to 12 months of age. The h²s, estimated by paternal half-sib analysis, were 0.15±0.07 for birth weight, 0.18±0.08 for weaning weight, 0.39±0.11 for 9-month weight, and 0.55±0.13 for 12-month weight. Genetic correlations among body weights were 0.15-0.99 and phenotypic correlations 0.02-0.

Presents results of a study carried out to analyse growth traits of the Dorper sheep. Data on 969 lambs collected over a 10-year period (1978 to 1987) at Magogo, Kenya were used in the study. Lamb traits studied were weights from birth to yearling and absolute growth rates between adjacent stages of growth. All the fixed effects studied influenced growth in one way or another.
