Estimated live weight of growing Pêga breed donkeys
ABSTRACT: The equations available in the literature to estimate the body weight (BW) of Pêga breed donkeys were evaluated using 25 animals aged 0-6 months and it was proposed an equation for BW prediction. For the measurement of the thoracic perimeter (TP) and for weighing the animals using the weighing tape, the animals were positioned in a forced station on a steep slope. An electronic scale was used for the determination of the BW. Accuracy of linear and nonlinear equations described in thedoi:10.1590/0103-8478cr20161120 fatcat:3bftmxddlbdktjg6bysn5jedxa
