Abstract

A total of 369 Sonadi sheep rear during the period of 2010-15 were analyzed to assess the effect of non-genetic factors on Greece fleece yield of Sonadi sheep. First six month fleece yield and adult annual GFY were estimated as 245.09±7.29 gm and 861.39±9.54 gm, respectively. Season and sex of lambing had significant influence on GFY traits. Lambs born during March to June achieved higher first six months GFY than lambs born in other season.
