Abstract:
The present research work entitled “Effect of different weaning age on morphometric measurements of goat kids” was carried out to study the effect of different weaning age on morphometric characters in terms of Sirohi goat kids. Twenty four Sirohi kids of one month of age were randomly selected and divided into three groups of each having eight kids at the goat farm of S.K.N. College of Agriculture, Jobner. Group T1 weaned at 60 days of age, T2 at 75 days and T3 at 90 days. The concentrate supplement given @ 1.5% of body weight and Mungbean straw ad-libtum to all kids during whole experimental period. Other management practices were similar for each groups. Morphometric characters viz., body length, height at withers, heart girth, punch girth and loin girth of kids was recorded fortnightly. The overall increase in body length was 10.41, 9.97 and 10.13 cm, wither height was 10.13, 9.75 and 9.91 cm, punch girth was 12.09, 10.78 and 11.98 cm, heart girth was 11.74, 11 and 11.56 cm and loin width was 3.9, 3.7 and 3.69 cm in T1, T2 and T3 groups, respectively. The overall increase in body length, wither height, heart girth, punch girth and loin width was highest in group T1 followed by T3 and T2. The difference between groups for average body length, wither height, heart girth, punch girth and loin width was non-significant.
