Keywords: sheep | birth weight | body measurement at birth | genetic parameters and genetic trends

The main objective of this study was to estimate the genetic parameters and genetic trends for birth weight (BW),heart girth (HG), and body length (BL) at birth of sheep populations in Thailand. Data were collected during 1998 to 2011 fromfour livestock research and testing stations. Fixed effect testing showed that sex, herd, contemporary group and breed groupgreatly influenced on the investigated traits (P
