Short summary
The demand for mutton is increasing yearly. Sheep were raised to 180 d of age, and production performance was measured and recorded at 20-d intervals from 80 to 180 d. The sheep were then slaughtered at 180 d of age. Blood, tissues, and other samples were collected for follow-up experimental research. Finally, we detected a mutation site in a specific segment of the ovine MAP3K5 gene, and this site can be used as a molecular genetic marker to improve sheep body size traits.
