- ... Accurate estimates of milk production or milk intake are difficult, as all methods interfere to some degree with the natural behaviour of the dam and her young, and potentially alter milk yield itself. The present study compared milk yield obtained by the “oxytocin” method, udder dimensions (UD), the isotope dilution method, and live weight change of the lamb, in an attempt to select the most accu ...

- ... Passive immune transfer is the only way to provide protection in neonate ruminants. As it is suggested to be affected by both maternal and neonatal factors in different breeds, we tried to investigate possible effects of sex, litter type, ewe parturition number and birth weight on it and also on the immunoglobulin concentration during the first month of life in a fat-tailed sheep. Total immunoglob ...
