Small Ruminant Mammary Gland - Anatomy & Physiology
In the ewe and nanny goat, the mammary gland is restricted to the inguinal region. It comprises two mammary complexes, one on each side of the ventral midline. Each complex consists of a single mammary unit. The duct system of each mammary unit opens in a single orifice on the tip of the teat.
In the ewe, the lymph may drain directly into the iliofemoral and medial iliac lymph nodes.
