Abstract

This study was conducted to compare the growth and survival characteristics of crossbred lambs produced by mating Kivircik ewes with German Black-Headed Mutton (GBM) x Kivircik (F-2) rams, GBM x Merino (F-2) rams, as well as the growth and survival characteristics of purebred Kivircik lambs. The data were obtained from 59 (GBM x Kivircik) x Kivircik, 59 (GBM x Merino) x Kivircik, and 60 purebred Kivircik lambs.
