The results of the selection of parents in sheep breeding schemes depend largely on the inheritance patterns of economic value. It would appear that the elucidation of the degree to which economically valuable productive traits are transmitted from parent to offspring could be of theoretical significance to improved selection and more efficient combinations of different breeds in crosses. Data on the inheritance of valuable economic traits have been differently interpreted in the literature. Further studies and additional experimental data on the inheritance patterns of productivity traits are needed in order to apply them to workable techniques of sheep breeding.
