Back Cover Text
Wondering what your next set of lambs of fleece might look like? Or how to evaluate many traits during one trip through the chute?
Are you searching for an efficient method to improve particular traits in your flock? Or for information that integrates and explains quality fleece production?
Are you looking for the latest in cheep genetics information?
This book can help with all of that!
After years of research within their own flocks and others, the authors of Beyond the Coat of Many Colors bring together both science and art to help the reader recognize and understand:
- the genes involved in fleece and lamb color,
- the interaction of those genes with other positive or negative traits, and
- the recombination of these genes within each generation to expand their flocks’ lamb and fleece offerings.
Written in easy-to-understand language, the point is to empower the shepherd with knowledge that will lead to better understanding and product control within their flocks.
