Wool testing - a tool for selection

Gotland lambs are all individually evaluated - we do an objective check of their body conformation, weight and wool quality according to a standardized protocol.

To link the phenotype we see to wool micron count - we send wool samples from each lamb for OFDA analysis.

For more information - here is a good read for anyone raising fiber animals.
