Abstract


In the paper it emphasizes the importance of inheritance of colour variation and ofbreeding problems, important traits affecting the price of the production fur traits.It is therefore an attempt to highlight those aspects which can make an impact onthe improvement in Karakul pelt production. From an economic point of view, ithas been shown by various authors that within different colours, the pelt price ispredominantly determined by curl type, pattern score, hair quality score and hairlength traits. Traits such as pelt thickness and hair thickness are also correlated tothe price, though their contributions are minimal. It was furthermore indicated thatthe relative weight for pattern score becomes less important and for hair qualityscore it becomes more important with a decrease in curl development. Propertiessuch as colour intensity become more important in the coloured pelts.
