Abstract: Using paternal half-sib (PHS) analysis, coefficients of genetic and phenotypic correlations be- tween body weights of Yankasa lambs at birth, weaning (three months), six months, nine months and one year of age were estimate. The highest genetic correlation coefficient of 0.33 was obtained between birth and yearling weight. Six- month weight had very low and negative genetic correlation with yearling weight (-0.04). Phenotypic correlation coefficients for the various body weights pairs were positive and mostly …
