Title: Heart Girth Reflect Live Body Weight in Sudanese Shogur Sheep under Field Conditions
Author: Elamin, Khalid M.
Abstract: The reflections of heart girth measurement to live body weight of Sudanese Shogur sheep under field conditions have been studied. Ninety males(90) of each three age groups were randomly selected( With a total population number of 270) in herds from different native areas where the animals were reared and evaluated using live body weight(kg) and heart girth measurement(cm). Means of live body weight and heart girth for the three age groups were calculated (P≤0.05). There were positive correlation coefficients (0.54, 0.66 and 0.81) between live body weight and heart girth. A predictive indices of (W= -4.62 + 0.45(HG), W= -23.78 + 0.73(HG) and W= -55.14 + 1.17(HG)) where more than (55%, 66% and 65%) of the population falls in respectively for the three studied age groups. It was therefore conclude that heart girth measurement is a useful tool in reflecting live body weight of Sudanese Shogur sheep under field conditions.
