Abstract

Data from a commercial sheep enterprise were used to derive correction factors to be applied to 120-day lamb weaning weights. These correction factors made use of information on lamb sex, weaning age, birth and rearing status, and age of dam. The factors obtained were compared with commonly used standard factors, and there was enough difference to justify development of within flock factors.
