Abstract:
Gurezi sheep is an indigenous multipurpose breed of Jammu and Kashmir. The breed possess wide range of economically important traits like adaptation to high altitude, milk production, disease resistance and better reproductive performance despite of its unique genital potential this breed is largely unexplored, hence the comprehensive study was conducted in native breeding tract. Data on growth, reproductive and dairy performance were recorded and analysed for performance evaluation. Average birth weight was 3.26+0.364 and 3.15+0.406 which is significantly high in gurez as compared to Tulail. Average weaning weight is 19.38+0.147 and 19.35+0.136 in gurez and tulail respectively with no significant difference between the two blocks. Similarly, average weight at 6 months were 22.03+0.256 and 22.09+0.234 respectively with no significant difference between the two blocks. Average age at first mating (months) in males and females 21.25+0.150 and 21.22+0.140, 10.81+0.078 and 10.72+0.078 in gurez and tulail respectively. Average gestation period (days) and age at Ist lambing (months) were 146.75+0.39 and 146.76+0.36, 16.31+0.076 and 16.23+0.070 respectively with no significant difference between the two blocks. Average milk yield (ml) is 655.59+32.790 and 668.75+31.478 in gurez and tulail respectively with no significant difference between them.
