DATA on 610 progeny of low quality adult black ewes with a strong constitution mated to black and grey rams are tabulated according to curl quality and class of ewes and lambs. Although the ewes were of low quality about 30% of the lambs were elite or class I. When the ewes were mated with grey rams the curl quality and class of the lambs were higher than when the ewes were mated with black rams.
