Factors affecting abortion, stillbirth and kid mortality in the goat and yaez (goat x ibex)

Small Ruminant Research 13(1): 33-40

Factors affecting abortion, stillbirth and kid mortality in the goat and yaez (goat x ibex)

Data on a herd consisting of 550-760 goats and goat x ibex hybrids with levels of ibex inheritance varying from 0 to 50% were analysed. Mortality was studied at 3 ages: from birth to 48 h after birth, from birth to weaning at 70 days (BWA), and from weaning to 180 days (AWA). Abortions were higher in primiparous than in older (11 vs. 5.3%). Compared with smaller litters, percentages of abortions and stillbirths were greater for triplet litters (13.4 vs. 6.2% and 15.5 vs. 5.3% respectively).
