Determination of the Closure Time of Growth Plates of Tibia-Fibula in Colored Mohair Goat’s Kids by Radiography
Osman Alpdogan and Musa Genccelep

In the present study, closure times of growth plates of tibia-fibula in mohair coloured goat kids were aimed to determine by radiography. For this purpose, a total of 20 mohair coloured goat kids (10 male, 10 female) were used. Body weights of the kids, sacrum height determined and tibia-fibula radiographies were taken monthly for 17 months. The first signs of the closure in the growth plates were the opaque areas developed in the middle radiolucent growth line up to across region through epiphysis. Full closure times were changed between 2 to 5 months in male and female goads. Full closure in the proximal plates occurred 14 month in females and 15 month in males. On the other hand, full closure in the distal plates occurred 16 month in females and 17 month in males. Therefore, distal growth plates closure of the tibia-fibula occurred latter compared proximal plates.
