Abstract:
The study was conducted to evaluate the growth performance of Boer-Central Highland Goats (CHG) cross kids at Sirinka Agriculture Research Center SARC. A total of 510 kids were used for the analysis of least square mean of birth weight, weaning weight, six month weight and yearling weight. The overall least square mean of birth weight, weaning weight, six month weight and yearling weight were 2.68±0.02, 9.82±0.17, 13.54±0.20 and 19.53±0.38 kg, respectively. The body weight gained from birth to weaning, weaning to six month and birth to yearling were 78.67±1.53, 37.27±1.85 and 33.01±0.77 g day–1. Birth type and year of birth of kids have significant effect on birth, weaning, six month and yearling weight. The birth and weaning weight of the present study had have higher than local breed of Abergelle, Central highland goats, Boran Somali and rift valley. When the age advanced to six month and yearling, the weight were comparable to central highland goats and little bit higher than Abergelle and Boran Somali. For future study, it will needs on farm and on station evaluation with better feeding management to see their genetic potential.
