Abstract

There were measured the main diameters (the dorsal and ventral bi-iliac and the vertical) in 273 Guzera females (Bos indicus), to observe its eventual correlation with age, height, lenght, thoracic perimeter and weight of the animal. The measures were made in vivo with the help of a Menissier and Vissac pelvimeter. On the whole there were obtained the following medias: dorsal bi-iliac diameter, 14.55cm; ventral bi-iliac diameter, 13.39cm; vertical diameter, 18.60cm. The statistical analyses had showed correlation between the diameter scores and the other body mensurations.
