A limit for horn length in White of Rasquera Goat
MetadataShow full item record
Well-preserved adult skulls (twenty-two male and 27 female) from White of Rasquera Goat breed were studied. The greatest length of the skull has been used to estimate head size. Horn length was measured with a tape along the whole length of the right sheath. The equations obtained were [log y = 3.231<br> 1.417 log x] and [log y = 3.248<br> 1.538 log x] for males and females respectively. It is possible that, although horn traits can be important for this breed, which is mainly naturally selected, other important traits must exist when choosing a mate.
