Table 1 Number of observed phenotypes for male and female Merinos

From: Genomic prediction of the polled and horned phenotypes in Merino sheep

  Females Males (wethers)
Polled 1123 511
Knobs + scurs 1237 561
Horned 88 481
  1. For the derived phenotype horned/non-horned (H/NH), horned animals are contrasted with animals with horns scored as ‘polled’, ‘knobs’, and ‘scurs’ and for the derived phenotype polled/non-polled (P/NP), polled animals are contrasted with animals with horns scored as ‘horned’, ‘knobs’, and ‘scurs’
