Doe Productivity and Preweaning Kid Growth of Local Goats in Palu, Indonesia

Sri Wulan, A. Naser, Y. Duma, Damry

One approach that can be done to increase the productivity of local goat is through improving does conditions before mating. This research was conducted to determine the parent productivity factors (body weight, parity and Body Condition Score (BCS) on the preweaning productivity of kids (litter size, birth weight, number of weaned children and weaning weights) in Palu, Indonesia. Data collected from three main goat keeping areas (Layana, Tondo and Kawatuna). There were 76 goats were taken as samples from goat keepers determined purposively on the basis of animal ownership and goat keeping experience. Data collected were parturition time, doe body weight at the parturition, birth weight, birth type, litter size, and sex of the new born kids. The bpdy weight changes of the kids before weaning were also recorded. Data were analysed with a regressiona analysis to indicate the possible relationship between the parental factors before giving birth and the factors that were recorded after parturition. Results showed that the body weight of the doe (X1) signicantly affected the litter size (Y1) and tended to affect the average birth weight (Y2), total birth weight (Y3), and total weaning weight (Y6), but it did not affect the kids crop (Y4), and the average weaning weight of the kids (Y5). Maternal parity (X2) only affected the average birth weight (Y2), while the body condition score (BCS) of the doe (X3) did not have any relationship with the preweaning productivity of the kids under grazing conditions.
