Reproduction traits, known as the most important trait in lamb production, was investigated with respect to the genetic determination of age at first lambing (ELA), lambing interval (ZLZ), total number born, number of born alive and stillborn lambs These traits were analysed based on multiple-trait as well as repeatability animal models. Finally the genetic parameters of different breed were compared, The data consisted of 35381 lambings collected from 1988 to 1998.
