Abstract:
In order to study the effect of bilateral crossbreeding between Arkhamerino (Ar) and Ghezel (G) sheep on the quality of wool produced by their F1 crosses, 16 ArkhamerinoxGhezel (ArG) F1 sheep and 53 GhezelxArkhamerino (GAr) F1 sheep were sampled. Fiber Diameter (FD), Coefficient of variation of fiber diameter (CVf) and Staple Length (SL) were traits measured on wool samples. The variations between obtained data were analyzed for genotype, sex and birth type. The results showed that the FD was not affected by any of the factors in model. Genotype, had significant effect on CVf and SL (p<0.01) and the effect of sex on the SL was significant (p<0.01). Also twin F1s produced longer staples than single crosses (p<0.01). Bilateral crossbreeding between Ar and Gh sheep did not make considerable changes in FD of wool produced by their F1 crossbreds but CVf and SL of wool have been influenced.
