Abstract

Body weight, chest girth, body length and wither height measurements were monitored on 731 animals comprising 228 Bunaji or White Fulani (WF), 70 Sokoto Gudali (SG), 380 Friesian x White Fulani (Fr x WF) and 53 Charolais x Sokoto Gudali (Ch x SG) calves over a 24-month period. The effects of breed, sex, season, age and body condition on these measurements were also investigated. All variables except sex, had significant (P<0.001) effect on body measurements. Sex differences were significant (P<0.05) only for wither height.
