Abstract:

A study on evaluation and morphological characterization of Pattanam and Ramnad White sheep breed, distributed in Ramanathapuram, Pudukottai, Sivagangai, Madurai and Dinigul districts of Tamil Nadu state, was undertaken in the farmers’ flocks during the year 2019.The present study shows that the colour, horn pattern and body confirmation are entirely different for both the breeds.Owing to the growing preference among the farmers and larger size of the Pattanam sheep breed it would be advantageous to the farmers if the sheep breed is registered soon. And so, it will be helpful for researchers to enhance genetic improvement in this breed and the economic status of those farmers can be improved.
