Romedi Celik, Neval Berrin Arserim and M. Hanifi Durak

Abstract:
This study was done to determine fertility, growth and body measurements in Zom sheep type reared in the vicinity of Diyarbakir. 96 Zom sheep and 107 lambs, born from them were used. Fecundity, fertility and twinning (%) were 1.11, 1.13 and 13.8%, respectively. Birth weight, 15th, 30th, 45th, 60th days at body weight and daily live weight gain from birth to 60 days age for Zom lambs were 4.75, 9.34, 12.85, 15.89, 18.70 kgs and 232 g, respectively. While dam age effective on birth weight, 15 and 30th day of body weight of lambs, gender was found significant on whole growth period from birth to 60 days of age and daily live weight gain (p<0.05). The average body size of Zom sheep were determined as these, respectively; withers height 72.89 cm, body length 75.05 cm, chest depth 34.97 cm, chest width 25.29 cm, chest circumference 105.42 cm, ear length 16. 85 cm and front shin circumference 8.66 cm.
