Résumé partiel
An investigation was carried out to study the morphometric characteristics of local goats and goat production management practices followed by goat rearers in Guntur district of A.P. A total of 240 goat rearers, selected at random from three animal husbandry divisions of the district, were interviewed by a pretested schedule and required data were collected, analysed and presented in the present work. The local goats of Guntur district were medium sized. The predominant coat colour was multi colour (43.82%) and bicolour (43.38%) followed by single colour (12.80%). The bicolour pattern consisted of mainly black and white (24.45%) followed by brown and black (4.12%). The overall head profile of most of the local goats was slightly convex (58.63%), followed by straight (41.37%). Majority of the local goats had pendulous ears (82.30%), while very small number of goats had horizontal ears (10.95%) and erect ears (6.75%). Most of the local goats had wattles in both male (82.25%) and female goats (69.14%). Majority of local goats did not have beard (85.28%). Most of the local goats of both sexes of Guntur district were horned (93.51%) but few were polled (6.49%). The overall mean of the body length, body height, chest girth, paunch girth and body weight of local goats of Guntur district were found to be 68.3±0.2cm, 79.7±0.2cm, 77.8±0.2cm,77.8±0.3cm and 35.4±0.2kg, respectively. The mean body length of local goats of Narasaraopeta division was significantly (P<0.01) higher than that in Guntur and Tenali divisions. The mean body height of local goats of Narasaraopeta and Guntur divisions was significantly (P<0.01) higher than that in Tenali division. The mean chest girth of local goats was significantly (P<0.01) higher in Guntur division than that in Narasaraopeta and Tenali divisions. The mean paunch girth of local goats was significantly (P<0.01) higher in Guntur division than that in Tenali and Narasaraopeta divisions. The mean body weight of local goats was significantly (P<0.01) higher in Guntur division than that in Narasaraopeta and Tenali divisions.
