Résumé

L' influence de l'age et du sexe sur les valeurs Hematologiques des chivres et des moutons etudie's dans la region. Semi-aude de l'etat de Borno du Nigeria. L'age et le sexe influencent remarquablement (P<0.005) sur le taux de globules rouges des chevres. L'age influencait les valurs d' Hemoglobine et d'Hematocrite. L'age et Le sexe influencaient grandement (P<0.01) les valeurs du volume corpusculaire moyenne des cellules. La concentration corpusculaire moyenne de l'Hemoglobine etait influencee par l'age. les lymphocytes constituaient plus de 60% du taux de globules blancs chez les chevres males et femelles. Les taux de neutrophiles et d'oesonophiles etaient influence's par le sexe et l'age. Le sexe influencait (p<0.05) les valeurs en Lymphocytes et monocytes chez les chevres. Le sexe et L' age influencaient (P<0.05) le taux de globules louges chez les moutons. L'es moutons. L'es valeurs d' Hematocuite et La concentration corpusculaire moyenne d'Hemoglobine chez les moutons etaient influence'es (p<0.05) par le sexe et L' age. Le volume corpusculaire moyen etait influence' (P<0.05) par L' age. Le sexe influencait significamment (p<0.05) les taux de monocytes et de globules blancs.

Abstract

The influence of age and sex on the heamatological values of goats and sheep studied in the arid zone of BornoState of Nigeria. Age and sex remarkable influence (P<0.05) on the red blood cell (RBC) counts of goats. Age influenced (P<0.05) the haemolglobin (HB) and the packed cell volume (PCV) values. Age and sex greatly influenced (P<0.01) the mean corpuscular volume (MCV) values. Mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCHC) was influenced by age. Lymphocytes constituted more than 60% of the total white blood cell (WBC) counts in male and female goats. Neutrophill and eosinophil counts were influenced by sex and age. Sex influenced (P<0.05) monocyte and lymphocyte values in goats. Sex and age influenced (P<0.05) the RBC values in sheep. PCV and MCHC values of sheep were influenced (P<0.05) by both age sex. The MCV was influenced (P<0.05) by age. Sex significantly influenced (P<0.05) the total WBC and monocyte counts.
