Abstract


Global wool production is approximately 1.3 million tones per annum of which 60%goes into apparel Unfortunately, the total percentage of wool used for textiles hasshown a dramatic decline in the past decades, but this has been almost entirely due tothe increasing supply of synthetic fibers and the total weight of wool produced has infact remained fairly static. However, fortunately the demand for natural products hasraised the demand for woolen garments, particularly in developed countries. Thereforephenotypic parameters like live weight, fleece weight and staple length have beenestimated for 100 yearlings’ ewes and rams from S.C. Exim Agro.Ovis MPS. SRL Fibiş.Tsurcana yearling ewes had a medium weight of 38.06-±0.165 kg, the grease fleeceweight of 2.77±0.198 kg and the staple length of 28.49±0.170 cm. Yearling rams werelighter with only 37.57±0.25 kg, while the grease fleece weight was of 3.20±0.19 kg andthe staple length of 19.16±0.35 cm.
