Biology (-tech,-chem,micro-) / zootechnics
English term or phrase: pin (or hook)
American research suggests that there is not a marked difference in pelvic area between breeds, however there is a big difference difference between individual bulls. External appearance does
not give a good guide to pelvic area or potential calving difficulties - Width of ///'pins' (or hooks),/// hip to 'pin'length and slope of rump are not as important as direct pelvic area measurement of cows for dystocia assessment.

Related to cattle fertility.

Thanks for your help.

agree  Catherine GUILLIAUMET: Il s'agit bien de l'ischion, et de la largeur de l'ischion (voir URL ci-dessous) même si je déteste le logiciel utilisé par le répondeur parce qu'il est général totalement non fiable en médecine hum ou véto.http://www.agrireseau.qc.ca/bovinslaitiers/Docu
