Abstract
Experience has shown that certain preventative inoculations given to cattle must be closely related to liveweight if they are to be both effective and safe. Except on experiment stations facilities for weighing are limited, so that estimates must be made either by eye judgment, or on some index based on simple measurements. So few people can estimate weight, within defined limits, that it was considered worth while to determine the relationship between some simple measurements and liveweight in an experiment station herd, and to derive therefrom a simple formula for estimating the latter. Bullocks chosen for this study were raised at the Serere Experiment Station in the Teso district of Uganda and were of a uniform zebu type.
