Effect of flock size on the performance of goats fed gliricidia-supplemented diet in dryland farming in Bali, Indonesia



Effect of flock size on the performance of goats fed gliricidia-supplemented diet in dryland farming in Bali, Indonesia



Asian-Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences 9(3): 271-279



On-farm experiments were carried out in dryland farming in Bali for 48 weeks to study the effect of flock size on the growth and carcass characteristics of cross-bred goat fed gliricidia-supplemented diet. Eighty four bucks with average live weight of 15.87 kg were allocated in a completely randomized block design arrangement, consisted of three treatments and four blocks. The treatments were 3 goats/2.7 m-2 (A), 6 goats/5.4 m-2 (B) and 12 goats/10.8 m-2 (C), while the floor density was the same (0.9 m-2 per goat). Feed consumed by goat B was similar (p gt 0.10), while feed consumed by goat C was lower (p lt 0.10) than goat A. Live weight gain of goat B and C were lower (p lt 0.05) than goat A. FCR of goat B was higher (p lt 0.10) than goat A, while FCR of goat C was similar (p gt 0.10) with goat A. Goat B has heavier (p lt 0.10) head and digestive tract, while goat C has heavier (p lt 0.10) hindlegs and digestive tract than goat A. Goat B has lighter (p lt 0.10) shoulder, while goat C has lighter shoulder and heavier legs (p lt 0.10) than goat A. The carcass quality (measured in terms of loin eye muscle area, meat, bone and fat portions) were not affected (p gt 0.05) by the flock sizes.
