MetadataShow full item record
A no previously referenced relict sheep population from southwest of Spain is described. From eighteen adult ewes, considered as pure animals, we obtained twenty lineal measurements and the individual live weight. According to the obtained results,"Fardasca" sheep can be described as straight frontal profile and subconvex face profile, sublonginial proportions, eumetrical tendencies, a marked dynamic aptitude, and conspicuous colors<br>spotted legs and body, and black head -. These animals can be clearly differentiated from the Spanish"Ripollesa" breed, which to whom at first glance seemed to have a certain similarity.
