dc.description.abstract(1) Methods of lipide analysis have been surveyed and suitable techniques adopted for a study of tissue lipides in domestic animals. (2) Data are presented for liver lipides in twenty-five non-pregnant and ninety pregnant ewes,showing that fatty infiltration of the liver is quite common in apparently healthy pregnant animals. These findings are analysed in detail. Analyses of kidney specimens from the same animals are also recorded. (3) The effects of castration and of pregnancy toxaemia on tissue lipides have been examined and discussed. (4) Original data are given for blood lipides in the sheep, along with a survey of the effects of pregnancy and of fasting on the various fractions. (5) The operation of partial hepatectomy has been successfully adapted for use in ruminants and applied to a study of the effect of fasting on liver fat.en
