Skeletal and muscular development in fallow deer






Zootecnica e Nutrizione Animale 12(6): 473-478

Skeletal and muscular development in fallow deer

For 26 deer, the growth of the neck, foreleg and hindleg muscle groups and 16 constituent muscles, of bone in the neck, foreleg, hindleg and loin, and of 9 individual bones and the 13 ribs was studied using the allometric relationship y = axb, where y = muscle or bone weight, x = total separable lean or total bone, and b = the allometric coefficient.

In 8 male and 8 female fallow deer (Dama dama) in the age groups 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 months, the muscle fibre composition and the muscle fibre diameter were analysed, depending on age and livestock farming. The animals examined were taken in equal...

The concentration of fermentation products (FFA [free fatty acids], NH4+ and free amino acids) and the fermentation pattern in the rumen of roe deer, fallow deer and mouflon were studied in 2 areas at the same season (autumn). Concerning the amoun...

A total of 121 European fallow deer does, being either parous (n=15) or nulliparous (n=106), were treated with intravaginal progesterone impregnated controlled internal drug release (CIDR) devices for 14 days. The does were divided into three trea...

The percentage of the digestive tract compared to the body weight was slightly smaller in roe deer than...
