DE LA VEGA, A.C.; ARCE, O.E.  and  WILDE, O.R.. Corporal and testicular development in male Creole goats at different birth seasons. Arch. zootec. [online]. 2010, vol.59, n.226, pp.291-294. ISSN 1885-4494.

Two groups (born in spring and autum) of 12 male Criollo Serrano goats were studied for body weight (PC) and scrotal circumference (CE) during 28 consecutive fortnights. PC and CE were correlated (r= 0.82, p<0.001). Interaction between time and season was registered (p<0.001) for PC with autocorrelation grade 1 (p<0.001) between sucessive measures. Predictive marginal equations grade 1 were fitted for PC and grade 3 for CE. The season of born, influences the evolution of PC and CE.

Keywords : Body weight; Scrotal circumference; Tucuman.
