Abstract:

The study was conducted to phenotypically characterize and assess husbandry and breeding practices of indigenous goat population in Tach Gayint and Ebinat districts of South Gondar Zone. The study was performed based on household survey, focus group discussion field observation and field measurements. For household survey, 144 households (72 from each district) were involved and 300 (≥3PPI) matured goats (female 200, male 100) were sampled for quantitative trait measurement. Whereas, a total of 420 goats (1PPI to≥3PPI) were used for measurement of growth trend and qualitative trait. Dentition was used to estimate the age of the goats. The study result indicated that mixed crop livestock was the main production system in the study area.
