Table 3 Average body weight and average daily gain of goats at arrival to the winter rangelands and at pre-kidding

From: Are winter rangelands enough to satisfy the nutritional requirements of late-gestation transhumant goats in Patagonia?

Winter rangeland ABW (kg) at arrival ABW (kg) at pre-kidding ADG (g) between arrival and pre-kidding
2010 Adult 41.1 (0.5) 32.9 (0.8) − 62.8 (5.4)
n = 93 n = 40 n = 40
Old 40.8 (0.5) 33.2 (1.3) − 59.3 (10.1)
n = 64 n = 10 n = 10
2011 Adult 36.0 (0.5) 34.0 (1.1) − 2.2 (3.5)
n = 74 n = 17 n = 14
Old 39.1 (0.4) 38.7 (1.0) − 8.4 (5.2)
n = 122 n = 29 n = 28
2012 Adult 41.1 (0.6) 38.3 (0.5) − 30.1 (2.2)
n = 88 n = 87 n = 79
Old 41.8 (0.6) 38.4 (0.5) − 41.9 (2.9)
n = 67 n = 59 n = 55
