The aim of this study was to examine Profile Analysis by using a sample from Animal Science. Profile Analysis, a multivariate approach to Repeated Analysis is an alternative to MANOVA due to ensuring different information to a researcher such as comparison of levels of treatment, repeated measurement and treatment by time interaction. Besides, PA is an advantageous because it doesn't require spherity assumption in MANOVA. As a result, PA has been widely used in social and psychology fields except from animal science. Because of these reasons, in the future it was suggested and based on our results that PA could be used for studies regarding animal science containing repeated measurement.
