Abstract:

Red Kandhari is one of the important breed of Marathwada region of Maharashtra State. The body measurements and body weight of Red Kandhari bullocks at more than 36 month of age were studied at different locations in the breeding tract. The body measurements play an important role in judging bullocks and often help in predicting probable value of the animals. The chest girth, body length and height are indicative of development of various body cavities, thus giving sufficient idea about development of vital organs. The body measurements indicate the skeletal growth of the animals. Body length and height at withers are the measures of bone growth while chest girth is a measure of development of muscles, bones and fat and it has close relationship with the live weight.
