The paper reports normal hematologic values of a large number of sheep under known and stated conditions. Seven hundred ninety-four samples from 336 RambouilletColumbia-cross sheep 18 to 36 months of age were taken over a period of 20 months. Monthly ranges, averages, and one standard deviation are reported for erythrocytes, leucocytes, thrombocytes, differential counts, hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume, and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration. Altitude appears to affect some of these values. Author
