Longitudinal (a) body condition score and (b) dual-energy absorptiometry-determined body fat in growing sheep. BCS = body condition score. DXA fat = dual-energy absorptiometry-determined body fat (%). Six-month through to 14-month old castrated male sheep. Measurements taken every 8 weeks over 32 weeks (n = 24, Exp. 3). Values are means ± S.E.M. The significant effect of time is presented as: Time: P < 0.001
