Research Project: Does Sex of Littermates Affect Lifetime Productivity of Ewes?

Location: Range Sheep Production Efficiency Research

Project Number: 5364-31000-011-01
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Dec 30, 2009
End Date: May 31, 2014

Objective:
Test the null hypothesis that sex of littermates does not affect lifetime productivity of ewes.

Approach:
An appropriate dataset will be extracted from the USDA, ARS, U.S. Sheep Experiment Station genetics database. Various statistical methods and models will be used to determine whether the sex of littermates affects the lifetime productivity of ewes. Wingate University will work with scientists at the U.S. Sheep Experiment Station to analyze and interpret the data.
