    A team of researchers in the Midwest, including Agricultural Research Service scientists from the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center in Clay Center, Nebraska, is developing a web-based tool that. As modern medicine evolved, Pasteur's experiments on rabies and anthrax vaccination in sheep, Koch's studies of tuberculosis, and Salmon's direction of research in the US Bureau of Animal Industry—all of which depended on the knowledge of comparative or veterinary research—provided the basis of contemporary preventive medical treatments.

    Sheep were among the first animals domesticated. An archeological site in Iran produced a statuette of a wooled sheep which suggests that selection for woolly sheep had begun to occur over years ago. The common features of today's sheep were already appearing in Mesopotamian and Babylonian art and books by B.C. In the United States, most sheep and lambs are meat-type animals kept primarily for the production of lambs for meat or dual-purpose breeds kept for both meat and wool production. Meat production is also a significant profit center in sheep dairying. Meat sheep producers sell either slaughter lambs or .

The United States Meat Animal Research Center (USMARC) was founded 51 years ago on J (U.S. Meat Animal Research Center Clay Center, NE). This research facility was established to consolidate the United States Department of Agriculture’s research on farm animals; beef, swine, and sheep in particular.

A sire's genetic value is reflected in his EBV for a given trait, but since a sire's progeny only get half their genes from him, EPDs are only half the sire's EBV.
