Morphometric characterization of Katjang goat in Malaysia is vital for discussion and in addition for genetic improvement. This study was attempted for the morphometric characterization of indigenous Katjang goat and the relationship among the important morphometric traits was also performed. The study was conducted at the Faculty of Sustainable Agriculture (FSA), surrounding area of FSA Sandakan, Sabah and Batu Pahat, Johor. Characteristics of body weight (BW), body length (Bl), heart girth (HG), wither height (WH), hip height (HH), fore leg length (Fll), hind leg length (Hll), head length (Hel), head width (HW), ear length (El), ear breadth (EB), tail length (Tl), scrotal length (Sl) and scrotal circumference (SC) were gathered from Katjang goat. In a single parameter as body weight of Katjang at underneath 1 year age in bucks and 1 to 2 years in does were observed to be 7.41 ± 0.27 and 12.41 ± 0.41 kg respectively. While, all findings gradually increased for all parameters according to increment of the age, scrotal length and scrotal circumference in Katjang goat. Almost all the parameters contemplated found similarly higher in bucks than that of does.
