INVESTIGATIONS IN THE EFFICIENCY OF USING ICAR STANDARDISED METHODS AC AND AT TO RECORD MILK YIELD IN SHEEP

ELENA GHIŢĂ, H. GROSU, MARIANA REBEDEA

Abstract


The paper presents the results of the experiments conducted using the standardizedmethods recommended by ICAR (International Committee for Animal Recording),AC and AT to record milk yield in sheep. The experiment used Karabash sheepraised in the experimental farm of INCDBNA Balotesti. The experimental methodsAC and AT are simpler than other methods and require individual milk yieldrecording at just one of the two daily milking sessions. The paper presents theresults obtained with ICAR methods AC and AT compared to the Romanian“Method of the control coefficient” developed by Th. Nica and B. Dermengi. Thepaper also gives recommendations on the selection of the most efficient method ofrecording to be used in the selection of sheep for milk in Romania.
