Skinfold thickness, condition score and tritiated water space in Boran cattle


, : Skinfold thickness, condition score and tritiated water space in Boran cattle. ILCA Bulletin (30): 8-9

For 29 Boran cows with a body weight of 350+or-62.1 kg, the correlation of anal skinfold thickness with body fat percentage (estimated by tritiated water dilution) was not significant, and it is concluded that condition score is the best indicator of nutritional status.

An attempt was made to use anal skinfold thickness as a quantitative measurement to estimate body fatness in Boran cattle (Bos indicus). Using the normal single-operator technique the relationship between skinfold thickness and the other measureme...
