In this study, Path analysis was used to determine the direct and indirect effects of some morphological traits such as wither height, sacrum height, body length, chest depth, chest girth and chest width on the weaning weight of sheep. The data was obtained from 200 heads of Awassi lambs raised in Gaziantep province. The results of the path analysis indicated that the variants of sacrum height and body length sustained the most significant effect on the weaning weight. Consequentely, chest girth and body length were the most favorable measurements to estimate weaning weight in Awassi and could be used as a reliable criteria for practical selection in Awassi lambs.

Bu çalışmada, koyunların sütten kesim ağırlığı üzerine sağrı yüksekliği, cidago yüksekliği, vücut uzunluğu, göğüs derinliği, göğüs çevresi gibi bazı morfolojik özelliklerin doğrudan ve dolaylı etkilerini belirlemek amacıyla path analizi kullanılmıştır. Çalışmanın verileri, Gaziantep ilinde yetiştirilen 200 baş İvesi kuzulardan elde edilmiştir. Path analiz sonuçlarına göre, cidago yüksekliği ve vücut uzunluğu değişkenlerinin İvesi kuzularında sütten kesim ağırlığı üzerinde önemli etkiye sahip olduğu ve göğüs çevresi ve vücut uzunluğunun İvesi kuzularında sütten kesim ağırlığını tahmin etmede en uygun ölçümler ve pratik seçim için güvenilir bir kriter olarak kullanılabileceği belirlenmiştir.
