Over the 10 mo of the experiment, the index of growth of the animals was determined by monthly measurements of body weight, length, withers height, hip height, chest depth
, width, girth, and hip width.
Body measurements includes body length, heart girth, paunch girth, wither height and chest depth
The following live morphometric traits were determined using a measuring tape : height at withers, body length, chest girth, chest depth
, chest width, hock/knee to floor and live weight.
Individuals who are not competent deepwater swimmers should restrict their tub and mat activities to water no deeper than chest depth
, or wear a lifejacket.
The modeling of the 200 meters IM event for male swimmers involved the integration of height, span/height index, chest depth
diameter, ankle flexion, trunk extension, swim velocity at lactic threshold, technical effectiveness in breaststroke (leg down sweep) and in FC (arm exit).
Body weight was measured weekly, and withers height, body length, heart girth, and chest depth
were measured every month for both groups.
Growth and value of livestock is reflected in increases in body length, height, chest depth
Traits related to body conformations in the experiment were height at withers (HgtWithers), rump height (HgtRump), body length (BodyLen), chest depth
(ChestDep), chest width (ChestWdt), rump length (RumpLen), hip width (HipWdt), thurl width (ThurlWdt), and pinbone width (PinWdt) and heart girth (HeartGrt).
Comparison between the two groups of lambs for carcass measurement (cm) showed that fat-tail docking had an effect on chest depth
Chest width, chest depth
and hip width were similar in JNC and its crossbreds.
Carcass length, chest length, femur length, chest width, hip width, femur width, chest girth, chest depth
and femur depth were measured.
