Q. L. Zhang, Li, J. P., Chen, Y., Chang, Q., Li, Y. M., Yao, J. Y., Jiang, H. Z., Zhao, Z. H., and Guo, D., Growth and viability of Liaoning Cashmere goat hair follicles during the annual hair follicle cycle, vol. 13, pp. 4433-4443, 2014.

Here, we studied hair follicle development of Liaoning Cashmere goats. Every month for 1 year, skin samples were collected from five 1.5-year-old female goats, and made into paraffin sections. A number of parameters were measured of primary and secondary hair follicles via microscopic observation including follicle depth, hair bulb width, dermis and epidermis thickness, changes in follicle activity, and histology. The results showed the presence of three phases in the annual hair cycle: anagen, catagen, and telogen.
