Abstract The skin is thin at birth. Seasonal variations and changes in the plane of nutrition affect the skin thickness. The differences in skin thickness between breeds of both B. taurus and B. indicus species, are highly significant. Both thin and relatively thick hides may be associated with any combination of milk and beef, early and late maturity, temperate and tropical type cattle.
