The Improvement of Meat Production at the Carpathian Goat Breed through Crossbreeding with Boer Breed
Abstract: The researches were made on 3 lots of male kids which were fattened with granulated mixed fodder and Lucerne hay. The lots were made as follows 1. R1 hybrids 13 heads, 2. F1 hybrids 17 heads, 3. Kids of Carpathian breed 11 heads. The fattening lasted for 100 days until the kids reached the body weighs between 29-36 kg. There were determined the speed of growing and the specific consumption per lot. The speed of growing at the R1 and F1 hybrids was significantly bigger than at the Carpathian breed. So, at the R1 hybrids the daily average increasing rate was higher with 39, 8 % (p < 0, 01), and at F1 hybrids the daily average increasing rate was higher with 21, 5 % (p < 0, 05) comparatively to the Carpathian kids. Also, at the R1 hybrids the efficiency of the fodder conversion was higher with 16 % and at the F1 hybrids with 7, 6 % besides the contemporaries of Carpathian breed. The slaughter output at the hybrids was bigger besides the Carpathian kids, the differences being significant only in the case of the R1 hybrids. Regarding the development of the muscles of the gigot through the muscularity indicator of the thigh (IMC) the differences were significant at the R1 and F1 hybrids besides the Carpathians but also between R1 against F1. Regarding the tissue structure of the carcasses it was revealed that the R1 and F1 hybrids had significantly more meat and fewer bones in the carcass comparatively to the contemporaries of Carpathian breed.
