Background:   Many of the sheep in the Western US are of the Rambouillet breed, which is considered a dual-purpose breed because both meat and wool have been economically important products. Dorper, a breed developed in South Africa, in a low rainfall area, is a hair/shedding breed that does not require shearing. The Dorper has been selected for carcass traits and adaptability to harsh environmental conditions typical of much of the sheep production area of the Southwestern US. The Dorper is a potential alternative to the Rambouillet for lamb production. A research trial was designed and is being conducted, that will provide sheep producers with information about the relative production of Dorper and Rambouillet ewes in commercial conditions.

One-hundred ewe lambs of each breed were obtained to create the research flock. Ewes were obtained from several different flocks to represent a broad sample of the breeds. Performance is being recorded for fertility, number of lambs born, number of lambs weaned, birth weight, weaning weight, post-weaning growth rate, and carcass traits.

Knowledge of performance differences between Dorper and Rambouillet ewes will provide producers with information needed to make an informed choice about expected performance of these breeds. Cost of shearing and income from wool and pelts will be included in the final analysis. The economic comparison of lifetime lamb production from Dorper and Rambouillet ewes also needs to account for ewe longevity. The Dorper breed is relatively new to the US and little comparative research with US breeds has been published.

POSITION DESCRIPTION:

The position includes responsibility for planning, conducting, interpreting and reporting results from breeding, selection and management research programs designed to increase the technology for improving the production efficiency and profitability of sheep and Angora and meat goats. Through consultation with the industry, peers and administration, research priorities will be selected to sufficiently limit the research program to allow for in-depth research and follow through to meaningful conclusions. This position includes the responsibility for managing the assigned land and animal resources, employing and managing a capable support staff, managing the expenditure of maintenance funds and utilizing the latest research technology for conducting an effective research program. Much of the research will be conducted in cooperation with other scientists and producers. A major responsibility is to communicate research results to the scientific community and to the industry.

International Goat Association, 1997-present


PRESENT RESEARCH INTERESTS:

Strategies for genetic improvement of meat and fiber production from sheep and goats.

Current projects include: Evaluation of Dorper and Rambouillet as maternal breeds in Texas range environment, Estimation of genetic variation for early-breeding-season fertility in meat goats, Estimation of genetic variation for juniper consumption in goats, and improved reproductive efficiency by use of the FecB allele in finewool sheep.

The purpose of each of these projects is to provide sheep and goat producers with the information they need to make informed decisions when selecting breeds or breeding stock within breeds to improve production efficiency.

 

PAST RESEARCH:

Evaluation of accuracy of central test performance for prediction of genetic merit for growth rate and fleece traits in Rambouillet sheep.

Genetic selection for heavy weight lean lamb: Estimation of genetic and phenotypic relationships among carcass measurements in sheep.

Economic analysis of lamb price schedules: Interpretation of economic signals given by the New Zealand lamb market to producers. Computer simulation was used to determine the economic value of genetic selection strategies.

Lamb growth and carcass composition: Published a series of 3 papers on growth rate and carcass composition in progeny of centrally tested rams.

Selection for reproduction in sheep: Estimation of variance and covariance components for litter size, ovulation rate, scrotal circumference and body weight.

Genetic relationships among production traits in Rambouillet sheep. Estimated genetic and phenotypic variance parameters for fleece weights, body weight and number of lambs born.

Genetic variation in susceptibility among sheep breeds to Ovine Progressive Pneumonia (OPP). Lambs of 4 breeds were artificially infected and responses evaluated. This was a cooperative project with Dr. de la Concha.

Genetic diseases: Analyzed data for determining mode of inheritance of Spider Syndrome in Suffolk sheep.
