Abstract

THE Merino breed has often been described as "the Royal Family of the Sheep World" and this title was never more applicable than in the case of the presentday Australian Merino—a sheep which, in addition to producing the world's most valuable wool is so staunchly-constitutioned that it will thrive under a wide range of conditions and has survived droughts in which the hardy native animals perished in thousands.
