IN our work on the inheritance of the abundance of halo-hairs in the birthcoat of the New Zealand Romney lamb, interest has become centred in a genetic situation which we find ourselves a little surprised to encounter in a character of a marketable product of livestock other than colour. While complexities are not lacking, it is plain that we are dealing with something more clear-cut than the usual multifactorial flock of factors defying genetic analysis.
