Livestock / Animal Husbandry / Cattle colours
Spanish term or phrase: longitud escápulo-isquial
From a document describing a particular breed of cattle. This part lists some objective measures. I have found one "English" page which uses the same wording (), but this appears to me to be an untranslated part in a page translated into English. I list it below for interest/guidance. Context:

"Estimaciones objetivas.- A partir de las medidas corporales: Alzada a la cruz, longitud escápulo-isquial, longitud de la grupa, anchura iliaca y perímetro de la caña."

The ONE reference using this in English (left "in Spanish"):
