Body weight is an important attribute in animal production as it forms the basis for not only assessing growth and feed efficiency but also in making economic and management decisions. The major focus of this review is to look at bioprediction of body weight and carcass parameters from morphometric (linear body) measurements in livestock and poultry production. There is a consensus amongst researchers working with different livestock and poultry species that morphometric characteristics could… CONTINUE READING
