Table 1 Each measured combination of collar size (S1–S5), ranging from 1 to 9 cm greater than the animals’ neck circumferences, and collar weight (W1–W5), ranging from 0.4 to 1.2% of the animals’ masses, for the different goats (G01–G04)

From: Best practice for collar deployment of tri-axial accelerometers on a terrestrial quadruped to provide accurate measurement of body acceleration

  1. All collar sizes were measured with the smallest and largest collar weight, and all collar weights were measured with the smallest and largest collar size, dashes represent collar combinations that were not measured due to study design. 0.4% of weight (W1) was not measured for goats G03 and G04 because the minimum weight of the collar was larger than 0.3% of body weight
