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






ILCA Bulletin (30): 8-9

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

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.
