  • Abstract:

    Normal values have been established for haemoglobin and plasma calcium, inorganic phosphate, magnesium, iron and copper in the blood of Angora goats maintained in the Cape Midlands of South Africa. With the exception of the values obtained for haemoglobin, the data collected for these determinations present slightly to considerably skewed distribution curves. Normal values have been established by using cumulative relative frequency polygons constructed from these data.
