چکیده    Objective- this study described the ultrasonographic features of the testes in west african dwarf bucks (wad). design- experimental study procedure- ultrasonographic images of testes of wad bucks were acquired in longitudinal, sagittal and transverse planes using a draminski 5mhz portable ultrasound machine after proper restraint of the bucks and gel application on the scrotum. animals- five wad bucks age ranging from 1 – 1½ years, weighing an average of 15±0.5 kg were acquired for the study. results- the seminiferous tubules showed as a homogenous moderately echogenic region separated by the hypoechoic inter-testicular septum, while the mediastinum testis showed as a thick band of hyperechoic tissue. the epididymis was an anechoic to heterogenously hypoechoic region bounded by the hyperechoic scrotal wall. conclusion and clinical relevance- ultrasonographic images were very useful in ante-mortem clinical assessment of wad bucks which will aid in proper selection for improved breeding programs.
