The aim of this work was to study the olecranon, interosseous space, and radial medullary and cortical thicknesses of the radio-ulna bone of Red Sokoto goat at different age groups. Fifty seven (57) goats of different age groups were used. Radiographic images and morphometric analysis of the radio-ulna bones were employed. The results showed that, the cortical (outer) and medullary (inner) portions appeared radiopaque and radiolucent respectively with a chronological increase in there thicknesses. Similarly, a chronological increase was seen in the olecranon bone length, width and interosseous space width but at different growth rate. The subgroups of week 20 -28 for RBMT and RBCT and subgroups of week 1 – 4 for RBCT had a non-significant growth rate (PĖ‚0.05). Similarly, non-significant growth rate (PĖ‚0.05) was seen within the subgroups of 20–28 weeks for OBL, OBW and ISW. Furthermore, only the subgroups of 8 – 16 showed significant difference (PĖ‚0.05) for OBW, this also implies a slow lateral growth rate for the OBW. Finally, it was concluded that the growth pattern for the olecranon, interosseous space, and radial medullary and cortical thicknesses of the radio-ulna bone in Red Sokoto goat increases with age, however non-significant growth were seen at some age groups.

Key words: Olecranon, Interosseous Space, Medullary and Cortical Thickness, Radio-Ulna Bone
