nCube definition


This set of three generalised categories was suggested by Dr. John Chapman (University of Portsmouth) and identifies breeding ewes, lambs aged under one, and all other sheep. Dr. Chapman notes that the number of ewes measures the breeding stock while the number of lambs measures the productivity of that stock.
