Effect of different seasons on Taggar goat performance
Effect of climate change through season of birth was carried out to evaluate some reproductive and productive performance of mountain goat (Taggar goats). Forty seven (47) mature Taggar goats were used in this experiment. Animals were allocated in two groups according to season of birth, rainy season and dry season. The results indicated that rainy season kidders secured higher litter size 1.45 compared with dry season kidders 1.18. Where kidding rate was high in rainy season kidders 100% compared with dry season kidders. Body weight was heavier at kidding and weaning time for rainy season kidders compared with dry season kidders. The kidding interval and service period for the rainy season kidders shorter compared with dry season kidders. In conclusion the season of birth was sharply affected goat reproductive and productive performance.
