Abstract

The crossbreeding of Malpura, Sonadi and Marwari with Karakul was attempted for the production of superior quality pelt and improvement in the mutton production. The results indicated that the production of greasy wool has also gone up significantly in halfbreds. Therefore the halfbreds may be produced to get optimum production of greasy fleece with better quality in addition to the production of superior quality pelt and mutton.
