AbstractThe gross morphometrical study was conducted on hip bone of eleven adult Sahiwal cattle irrespective of sex. These bones were collected from the postmortem site of College of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry, Anjora, Durg. The measurements were recorded with the help of meter scale, thread, Vernier calipers and protector. The hip bone was comprised of three flat bone ilium, ischium and pubis. The ratio between length and width of hip bone was 1.0:1.20. The transverse and vertical diameter is equal. The ratio between transverse and conjugate diameter is 1.0:1.36. The average length of pelvic symphysis is 16.20Â±0.58. The contributory ratio of pubic symphysis and ischial symphysis was 2.0:3.0. Distance between supraacetabular fossa was twice (18.20Â±.51 cm) to that between the illiopubic eminence (9.00Â±.40 cm). The area of ilium was ten times to that of pubis. The perent contribution of ischium was more in formation of acetabular rim.
