Studies on the physical measurements of body size in buffaloes. 1. Genetic and phenotypic variation



Studies on the physical measurements of body size in buffaloes. 1. Genetic and phenotypic variation



Indian Journal of Dairy Science 31(3): 198-203



Data on 593 female Nili buffaloes at 3 farms, sired by 37 bulls, were analysed. Body length averaged 197.95 plus or minus 7.86 cm from poll to pelvis and 114.30 plus or minus 4.11 cm from shoulder to hip. Chest girth averaged 200.97 plus or minus 8.54, paunch girth 225.96 plus or minus 11.26, udder length 53.47 plus or minus 6.66, height at withers 134.51 plus or minus 4.06, height at croup 137.03 plus or minus 3.90, and hip width 53.60 plus or minus 2.95 cm.
