Fourteen female Alashan white cashmere goats were investigated for fibre finesses (diameter) and coefficient of variation of fineness (CV). The investigation focused on the same animals combed at 1, 3 and 4 years of age and fibres were collected from 10 different body areas. A statistically significant effect was observed for both year of collection and body areas. The present paper suggests that the fibres of one-year old animals should be kept distinct from older ones, likewise fibres from upper part of the body should be separated from the others. © 2016 Published by Elsevier B.V.

Abstract

Fourteen female Alashan white cashmere goats were investigated for fibre finesses (diameter) and coefficient of variation of fineness (CV). The investigation focused on the same animals combed at 1, 3 and 4 years of age and fibres were collected from 10 different body areas. A statistically significant effect was observed for both year of collection and body areas. The present paper suggests that the fibres of one-year old animals should be kept distinct from older ones, likewise fibres from upper part of the body should be separated from the others. © 2016 Published by Elsevier B.V.
