Wool quality traits are routinely used for price discrimination. This has prompted many selection and nutritional management tools to be tailored towards best exploiting these traits for better profitability. Within Australia, the wool industry is spread across regions prone to seasonal change, and analysis of pasture-fed and Lucerne hay basal diets can provide a summation of this variation. The effect of sex and basal diet on wool quality traits is the objective of this research.
