Abstract:
The study was conducted to investigate milk production performance of Black Bengal goat in different parity reared in semi-intensive system. Twenty five pre-pubertal (6-7 months) female Black Bengal goats were selected on the basis of their phenotypic characteristics and their ancestral history from Goat Development farm, Savar, Dhaka. Milk production records of the Black Bengal goat were recorded from January 2000 to December 2002. During the trial they are allowed to graze and concentrate supplement at the rate of 300, 200 and 100 g d-1 to does bucks and kids respectively. Average litter size in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd parity was 1.08, 1.76 and 1.96, respectively. Total milk yield d-1 in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd parity was 275, 312 and 332 g d-1, respectively. Lactation length and milk yield kg-1 live weight lactation-1 in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd parity were 61.56, 66.4 and 67 days and 1.02, 1.2 and 1.2 kg, respectively. Milk yield lactation-1 was 16.37, 20.86 and 21.8 kg, respectively. Milk production performance of Black Bengal goat was better in 3rd parity than that of the 2nd and 1st parity.
