Breeds of sheep will exhibit differences in lamb and wool production on a lifetime basis as well as a yearly basis. When based on a per ewe present basis, cumulative production represents that amount of production a producer could expect to market from a given set of ewes. Producers need to recognize that an economic advantage exists for those ewes that can produce the same amount of production as other ewes but do it in fewer years. This study evaluated that total production of group of ewes for 6 years.
