Abstract

Goat is one of the most Important animals in livestock Industries. This is because of Its ability to produce not only meat as a nutrient sources, but also producing sub-product such as skin and milk. In Malaysia, intensive farming of goat are mainly focusing for meat production. The research was conducted to investigate the productive and reproductive performance of Boer and Katjang goat and to find out the relationship among the productive and reproductive parameters of Boer and Katjang goat. This study was conducted in the goat house at Faculty of Sustainable Agriculture (FSA) from March 2016 until November 2016. Two breeds of goats that available In the farm, Boer and Katjang was used as the experimental animals. The data on productive and reproductive parameter were taken from 42 Boer and 18 Katjang goats which consists of the kids and the adult goat. Among the goats, 18 were males and 42 were females. The results showed that the average milk production (±SE) per day for Boer was 277.14 ± 249.20 ml and Katjang was 175.00 ± 89.92 ml mainly affected by the litter size. The average (±SE) body weight based on the age for Boer were 13.35 ± 5.11 kg for under 1 year of age, 28.20 ± 7.14 kg for one to two years of age, and 46.84 ± 7.83 kg for above two years of age. The average ( ±SE) body weight based on the age for Katjang were 5.00 ± 1.78 kg for under 1 year of age, 21.75 ± 5.44 kg for one to two years of age, and 30.80 ± 6. 92 kg for above two years of age. As for the birth weight of the kids, single birth average weight (±SE) was 2.73 ± 0.78 kg and twin average birth weight was 2.31 ± 0.38 kg for Boer. Meanwhile, for the Katjang single, twin, and triplets average birth weight (±SE) were 1.33 ± 0.17 kg, 1.83 ± 0.40 kg, and 1.57 ± 0.33 kg respectively. The number of kids born In Boer is 26 which is higher than Katjang, 12. The mortality rate was quite high for both breeds. In Boer, the mortality rate is 42.3% while 75% in Katjang and mainly caused by low birth weight.
