Abstract: 

Objective: Determination of morphology of the pigs car in Iranian Holstein and crossbred cattle.
Design: Cross sectional study.
Animals: Pigs ear from 72 Iranian Holstein and crossbred cattle.
Procedure: In this investigation the pigs car shape and size of 72 cattle (38 male and 34 female) of Holstein and crossbred in Shiraz slaughterhouse were studied. According to their age, cattle were allocated into three groups including: 0-2 years, 2-4 years and older than 4 years.
Statical analysis: ANOVA and Duncan Multiple range test.
Results: Some animals possessed extra appendix and in three of them a small appendix of about one cm length. Statistical analysis revealed that males had heavier pigs ear than females (P<0.05). There was no significant difference between treatment groups. No significant difference was observed between the two breeds. Dimensions of the pigs ear including length and width were compared in accordance with age, sex and breed, and no significant difference was observed.
Conclusion: The results reveal that the pigs ear of male cattle is heavier in both breeds and very different in shape.
