Aim: To determine biometry of the female genitalia of Kano Brown goats and Yankasa sheep.
Materials and Methods: Ninety-three samples (66 caprine and 27 ovine samples) of the entire reproductive tracts were collected and evaluated for biometrical dimensions.
Results: There was no significant difference in ovarian biometry of the sheep and goat, except the differences in their widths and weights. Biometry of the vagina and cervix agrees with established documentation. Pregnancy did not affect length of the uterine body but increased length of the uterine horns. Non-pregnant uterine horn of the ewe was greater than does in length and weight.
Conclusion: It is inferred that biometrical status of female genital tract is essential in artificial insemination, and pregnancy diagnosis.
