Abstract
Donkeys have been a source of draught power in many parts of the world from time
immemorial. Three donkeys of different body weights were tested at six draught levels (16-34%
of body weight) for 3 hours duration under sustained working to assess their draught capacity by
measurement of physiological parameters and physical responses. A fatigue scorecard was
developed to make optimum use of the donkey. This fatigue scorecard was analysed using
dimensional analysis approach to develop a fatigue number as a function of draught, duration of
work, speed and mass of donkey to assess the draughtability and fatigue of donkey under
sustained working.
