Monthly variation in adult body weights of ewes under semi-arid conditions of Rajasthan



Indian Journal of Small Ruminants 2(1): 1-6



Body weights of non-pregnant Malpura, Avimaans (derived from Malpura, Sonadi, Dorset and Suffolk) and Avikalin (derived from Rambouillet and Malpura) ewes were recorded at the Central Sheep and Wool Research Institute in Rajasthan over a period of two years, 1991- 92. The animals grazed 10-12 h daily, clean drinking water was provided twice daily and in the summer they were given hay. For the 2652 records, overall mean+or-SE body weight was 31.1+or-0.07 kg.
