Abstract:
The study analyzed 2,162 kidding records of Sirohi goats from the Animal Genetics and Breeding Division of ICAR-CSWRI, Avikanagar. Its aim was to investigate how the year and season of kidding influence multiple births, litter size, and abnormal births. Overall, the average litter size was 1.06, with 6.14% of kids being twins and 1.34% being born with abnormalities such as abortions, stillbirths, and premature births. The year 2010 saw the highest incidence of multiple births (9.94%), while the lowest was observed in 2012 (2.00%). Additionally, the highest percentage of abnormal kiddings (4.08%) occurred in 2012, and there were no abnormal kiddings in the years 2005, 2008, and 2009.
