Abstract:
The objective of the present study was to assess the morphology and morphometric measurements in lactating and non-lactating (n=15 each) Boer local she goats. In both the groups, udder was located in the inguinal region. It consisted of two mammary glands (right and left halves) divided by an intermammary groove and each had a single teat. In Boer local she-goats, right and left teat length (TL) significantly differed between the lactating and non-lactating animals. Udder length (UL), width of right (R-UW) and left (L-UW) quarter, udder thickness (UT), udder circumference (UC), teat diameter at base (TDB), teat diameter at tip (TDT), inter-teat distance (ITD), teat to floor distance (TFD), teat end to floor distance (TEFD) does not shown any statistical difference between lactating and non-lactating animals.
