Scrapie is an infectious disease that can affect sheep. Research indicates that an animal with a genotype QR or RR will not develop symptoms of Scrapie if exposed to the disease.
Breeders of large commercial flocks have shown interest in rams testing RR to incorporate this trait into their livestock.
All of the sheep at Sweetland Hill Farm have been tested for the R gene at codon 171. The genotype of any Sweetland Hill Farm finnsheep can be found at their page.
