The serum immunoglobulin concentration in one- to 11-day-old Scottish Blackface lambs born outdoors on a hill farm were very similar to those in Scottish Blackface lambs born indoors on an experimental lowland farm. The concentrations were significantly higher in single lambs than in twins, and in lambs which survived for six months than in lambs which died, and showed significant annual variations which could not be related to the weather. They were significantly correlated with the ages of the dams, the lambs' gains in weight to weaning, but not with the weights or ratios of weights of the lambs and ewes after lambing, nor with the birth-coat types of sexes of the lambs. There were wide variations in the capacities of the abomasums at birth.
