Possibilities of estimation of body weight by some body measurements in Konya Merino sheep



Possibilities of estimation of body weight by some body measurements in Konya Merino sheep



Hayvanclk Arastirma Dergisi 4(1): 23-25



The relation between body weight and body measurements, such as wither height, body length, breast depth, breast width, breast circumference and shin circumference, was studied in Konya Merino sheep.
