Lacaune sheep


This is a dairy sheep breed from France. For the purposes of the present project, a population of approximately 1,770 animals managed by 3SR partner Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique will be used in QTL discovery and validation. Whole-genome genotypes will be based on an analysis with the 50K SNP array. Phenotypes will pertain to milk somatic cell count, milkability, incidence of mastitis, mammary examination, milk bacteriological tests, ovulation and litter size.
