Historic livestock PRESS RELEASE: New Mexico’s only State recognized Heritage livestock, the New Mexico Dahl hair sheep introduced in 1540 by Francisco Vasquez de Coronado have been scientifically traced back to Coronado’s ancient Spanish origins. On March 23, 2021, world renowned DNA geneticist Dr. Rasmus Neilsen: University of California, Berkley center for Computational Biology, released the results of his analysis of the genetic domestic sheep side of the New Mexico Dahl Heritage hair sheep. There were two hypotheses regarding the origin of these heritage sheep,(https://www.newmexico.org/listing/terra-patre-heritage-farm-%26-ranch/8153/). 1. New Mexico Dahl Heritage sheep arrived in New Mexico with great grandfather of Donald Chavez (X16), Francisco Vasquez de Coronado in 1540, as per John O. Baxter’s book, Las Carneradas, Coronado’s first drove of sheep arrived in New Mexico in August 1540. 2. New Mexico Dahl Heritage Sheep, feral for almost five hundred years, naturally seeking the high country same safe habitat as Rocky Mountain Bighorn sheep crossbred with the Bighorn and evolving into a subspecies now referred to as New Mexico Dahl Heritage sheep. Dr. Rasmus Neilsen emailed sheep rescuer Donald Chavez y Gilbert to verify that he has scientifically proven the first hypothesis, specifically, that New Mexico Dahl Heritage sheep date back to Coronado's specimens arriving in 1540. New Mexico Dahl Heritage sheep DNA blood samples were extracted from the Terra Patre Foundation sheep herd, in Belen, NM by Dr. Alexandra Eckhoff, NM Live Stock Board, Field Veterinarian, ([email protected]), and forwarded via Dr. Neilsen's protocol to his lab for Computational Biology at the University of California, Berkley. Dr. Neilsen has not yet completed his analysis of the second hypothesis, that these sheep are crossed with native wild breeds, a term he calls "introgression." His response in another email in this regard was as follows: "We will get back to you on the possibility of introgression." Text of Dr. Neilsen’s letter: Dear Donald, Here is finally an update on the genomic sequencing of your breed of sheep. I think you will like the news we have for you - even if it has taken us a long time. I have attached a so-called PCA plot that illustrates the genetic differences among different breed of sheep. Roughly, the more distant two sheep are from each other in the plot, the more distantly related they are. Two sheep in the same area of the plot will tend to be closely related to each other. Your samples are labeled E and F. They have the dark yellow color towards the middle left. The two light green breeds they are found right next to are two traditional breeds from Spain: Xisqueta Sheep and Ripollesa Sheep. In other words, among a large group of candidate sheep we compared to, your breed seems to be most closely related to these traditional Spanish breeds. This is strongly consistent with your hypothesis that these sheep originate from escapes sheep coming from early Spanish settlers. Very interesting! We haven’t quite decided what to do with this yet, but we are considering contacting Spanish breeders to see if we can narrow it down more. But in any case, I though you would want to know!

Good morning I am not a master gardener or agricultural person. However, I am wondering if you can help me identify the grass in these photos (my yard). The blades are cupped near the root and grow out flat. They are about 1/4 inch wide. The stems are round or tubular. The grass is somewhat clumpish. Areas of the grass seem dead while other areas are lish and green.
