Comparison of Two Methods for the Measurement of Medial and Lateral Metapodial Bones in Karagouniko Sheep (Ovis aries, L. 1758) and Hellenic Goat (Capra hircus, L. 1758)

Table 1

Passing and Bablok regression equations between the metapodial lengths obtained with the caliper () and the 2-dimensional method () with 95% confidence interval (CI) and precision and accuracy between the lengths obtained by the two methods in sheep and goats.
