Age difference of certain carcass traits and carcass composition in male Cheghu goats

, : Age difference of certain carcass traits and carcass composition in male Cheghu goats. Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 59(6): 754-756

30 Cheghu aged 6, 12 or 18 months were fed ad lib. until slaughter at 12, 18 and 24 months resp. Slaughter weight averaged 16.48+or-0.99, 25.06+or-1.11 and 33.95+or-0.89 kg in the 3 groups resp., empty body weight 14.10+or-1.05, 22.32+or-1.17 and 30.89+or-0.94 kg, and dressed carcass weight 6.61+or-0.63, 11.05+or-0.70 and 16.11+or-0.57 kg.
