(Again emphasising the need for balanced selection, targeted toward meeting actual Australian market demands.)

(This article emphasises balances in selection for economically important traits as well as what farmers can do to maximise the best use of their genetics prior to slaughter.)
(This article, although based on research of established shedding breeds, provides the genetic knowledge of how shedding in sheep can be increased in expression.)
