Résumé partiel
A study was undertaken to study various goat production practices followed by the goat farmers and to record the physical and economic characters of local goats in Vizianagaram district. A total of 240 goat framers, selected at random from two divisions of the district, were interviewed by a pretested schedule and required information was collected. The local goats of Vizianagaram district were medium sized. The predominant coat colour was bicolour (48.64%), followed by single colour (44.22%) and multi colour (7.14%). The bicolour pattern consisted of mainly black and white whereas, single coat colour pattern was represented by black and white colour. The head profile of majority of local goats was straight (80.18%), followed by slightly convex (19.82%). Most of the goats (99.28%) had pendulous ears. Majority of goats (68.38%) did not have beard. Wattles were present in 50.88 per cent of goats and were present in both sexes. Both the sexes were horned (91.65%), but few were polled (8.35%). The overall body length of local goats of 2 teeth to full mouth age groups ranged from 61.02±0.25 to 76.62±0.51 cm in males and from 57.50±0.22 to 66.16±0.98 cm in females. The male goats of 2 teeth, 4 teeth, and full mouth groups had significantly (P≤0.05) more body length than the females. The overall body height of goats of 2 teeth to full mouth age groups ranged from 74.05±0.42 to 90.43±0.29 cm in males and from 70.96±0.29 to 73.84±0.51cm in females. The males of all age groups had significantly (P≤0.05) more body height and chest girth than the females. The overall mean body weights of local goats of 2 teeth to full mouth age groups ranged from 30.45±0.45 to 53.28±0.43 kg in males and from 26.15±0.34 to 43.58±0.43 kg in females. The males of 2 teeth, 4 teeth and full mouth age groups had significantly (P≤0.05) more body weight than the females. The overall mean age at first kidding, kidding interval and litter size were 16.83±0.13, 8.75±0.06 months and 1.99±0.02 respectively. Majority of does (85.25%) had shown twining compared to singles (8.25%) and triplets (6.50%)
