  An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of castration on growth performance, carcass characteristics and meat quality of Ardhi goat kids. Twenty-four weaner male kids with an average age of 3 months and 14.1±0.91 kg body weight were assigned randomly to one of two equal groups and the kids in one group were castratoed using elastrator rings while the other group was left intact. All kids were fed ad libitum on high energy commercial pellets for 82 days and slaughtered. Castration had no significant effect on slaughter weight, feed intake, gain, feed: gain ratio, carcass weight and dressing percentage. Castrated goat kids had significantly (p<0.05) heavier liver weight, more body fat thickness and lighter head weight than comparable intact. There were no differences (p>0.05) between castrated and intact kids on all studied internal fat depot weights, chemical composition of the 9-11th rib joint and meat quality of the longissimus muscle except for the separable fat percentage from 9-11th rib joint which was higher (p<0.05) for castrated as compared to intact kids.

  This study aims to investigate the effect of carrying one copy of the FecB allele on body weight of Naeimi and Naeimi crossbred lambs at birth, weaning, 75 and 100 days of age. A total of 107 lambs representing 24 purebred Naeimi (NN) and 83 Naeimi-Booroola carrier crossbred (NB) were examined. The results showed that 43 lambs out of the 83 NB lambs were heterozygous carrier of the FecB allele whereas the other NB lambs were homozygous non-carrier of the wild allele. The frequency of the B+ genotype was 0.52 among all born NB lambs. The results also revealed that mean body weights of NN lambs were heavier (p<0.05) than that of NB lambs at all studied ages. Body weights of NB++ were heavier (p<0.05) than NBB+ lambs at birth, weaning and 75 days of age, the differences in weight between NB++ and NBB+ at 100 days of age was not significant (p>0.05). The influence of type of birth on live body weight at birth and weaning age was significant (p<0.05) but these differences between single and twin born lambs and between twin and triplet born lambs disappeared (p>0.05) at 75 and 100 days of age. No differences (p>0.05) were noted in birth and weaning weights of male and female lambs, however, the male lambs being 7.2% heavier (p<0.05) than the female lambs at 75 and 100 days of age.
