Abstract

Production performance of Jakhrana goats was evaluated under semi-intensive and extensive system of management in its home tract. Data on production parameters from 229 goats and on reproduction traits from 318 goats belonging to 77 farmers of Jakhrana and it's surrounding 8 villages were collected. Goats were reared under extensive system (64%) and semi intensive (36%) system of management. The average body weight at birth, 3, 6 and 12 months were 2.54±0.11, 12.28±1.50, 16.47±1.89 and 25.30±3.01 kg respectively. The average milk yield and lactation length were 152.87±2.69 kg and 143.0±3.2 days in semi intensive system and 107.39±2.11 kg and 118.0±2.3 days in extensive system of management. The average age at first kidding, kidding interval and twinning rate were 561.24±9.83 days, 287.78±9.89 days, and 1.54±10.16 days in semi-intensive, and 632.3S±7.83 days, 332.86±9.34 days and 1.32±0.16 in extensive management system respectively. Significantly higher performance with respect to body weight of kids, milk yield, kidding interval and prolificacy was observed for does reared under semi-intensive system of management.
