Abstract X-ray and γ-radiation techniques for evaluating bone density under field conditions in cattle and sheep were investigated. The best results were obtained from measurements of the density of radiographs of tibial tarsal bones of sheep and from the absorption of γ-radiation of the tibial tarsal bones of sheep and the fibular tarsal bones of cattle. The γ-radiation techniques may be carried out rapidly under field conditions (up to 30 animals an hour) and bone density can be estimated with a standard error of 0.042-0.046 SG units.
