Abstract:
A study was conducted in the Department of Livestock Production & Management of College of Veterinary Science, AAU, Khanapara, Guwahati-22, Assam with an objective to evaluate the carcass characteristics and meat quality of local goats of Assam managed under intensive management system. Twenty (20) Assam local goats were divided in two groups viz. Group T0 (Control) and Group T1 (Treatment) comprising of 10 goats per group which were reared up to 5 months of age. Carcass characteristics were studied and meat quality evaluation were done at slaughter. The average carcass weights and dressing percentages were significantly higher in the goats reared under intensive management system (8.33±0.34 kg and 49.95%, p<0.01). There were highly significant (p<0.01) differences in different prime cuts including leg, loin, rack, shoulder, breast, flank, and neck in the goats under treatment. Highly significant (p<0.01) differences were also observed in tenderness, juiciness and overall acceptability between the two groups.
