Citation :- PHYSIOLOGICAL RESPONSE OF OSMANABADI WEANED KIDS TO VARIOUS HOUSING PATTERNS.Indian Journal Of Animal Research.2008.(42):296-300
Twenty four Osmanabadi weaned kids of similar age and body weights were randomly allotted
to six housing patterns. All the kids were maintained on a common feeding regime. Values of heart
beats under three types of floor ventilation and two types of roofs during each month revealed
significant (P0.05) differeces during first five months, whereas non-significant differences were
observed during August, September and October. The monthly values of respiration rate under
different types of floor ventilation and roofs during each months revealed significant (P<0.05)
differences during all months except during October. Respiration rate in sheds under tin roof was
higher as compared to that in thatch roof. The mean values of body temperature under various types
of floor ventilation showed non-significant differences whereas under roof types they varied
significantly during March, April and May (summer)
