FR 37. Effects of type of lambing on the body weight to differents ages in west-african lambs breds under very dry tropic conditions
Two hundred sixty seven West-African lambs were used to find the effect of type of lambing (single, double or triple) on body weight at differents ages. The information was taken from «Palmichal S. C.» Experimental station, located in El Hornito, Miranda county of Zulia state, Venezuela, characterized as very dry tropical forest. The evaluation was done from 1993 to 1995. Least square means from analysis of variance was done to analize the data. The body weight was affected (P<.05) by type of lambing until 180 days of the birth, however to the ninth months and one year of age the body weight was similar in the three types of lambing (P>.05).
