    • ...Environmental temperature and food composition were statistically significant but in real life they are far away from the effect of heredity ( Nurminen 1990) . Of course we assume that the temperature changes are not the same as outside of the farm and the animals are fed normally every day...
    • ...Animals seem to acclimatise to the seasonal temperature changes by eating more or less but the shearing is an unexpected temperature change to animals (Jansky et al. 1984, Nagasaka 1974, Nurminen 1990)...
    • ...So, the effect of temperature comes in practise by he effect of temperature comes in practise by the food consumption but after shearing animals do need higher temperatures during the cold seasons (Nurminen 1990, Vermorel 1988) ...
    • ...In short laboratory tests we noticed that the voluntary temperature tolerance of angoras was bigger than generally assumed in literature ( Hull & Hull 1982, Hull et al. 1986, Jansky 1984, Nurminen 1990, Tzschentke et al. 1990, Vermorel 1988) but in practise, it is not possible to have these kind of temperature changes because of moisture problems, higher food consumption and the changes may also stress the animal...
    • ...The effect of food composition and food consumption on wool production was much more smaller than the effect of heredity in this population (Nurminen 1990)...
