Short summary
Sulfur amino acids, such as methionine, and minerals, such as zinc, are the most important nutrients affecting wool production. This study evaluated an effect of zinc and methionine supplementation on Merino ewes wool features and zinc content in wool fibers. Wool fibers' length, thickness, breaking force and zinc content were higher in the supplemented group. Histological structure of fibers from both groups did not differ. The results are beneficial from the processing point of view.
