Extract

Fat and muscle reserves are mobilised during winter by breeding hill ewes, living in harsh environments, as they conceive and carry their lambs (Russel et al., 1968). Tissue depletion and repletion were studied in Scottish Blackface ewes through one productive cycle using computed tomography (CT). The aim was to use this nondestructive method to quantify patterns of change in carcass fat, carcass muscle and internal fat in ewes of differing age and reproductive status.
