Prion genotypes have been determined in hair and shedding wool sheep, mouflon and mouflon x domestic sheep crosses. Breeding programme has been initiated to develop a new Hungarian hair sheep breed. Since the frequencies of the resistant prion genotypes in the breeds involved in the crossbreeding programme are very low, continuous prion genotyping will be carried out to attain high frequencies of the resistant genotypes in the new breed.
