Reproduction performance of Tswana ewes and Boer does in South Eastern Botswana


Reproduction performance of Tswana ewes and Boer does in South Eastern Botswana



Thai Journal of Agricultural Science 32(1): 37-40



ISSN/ISBN: 0049-3589

The reproduction performance of Tswana ewes and Boer does was studied over a 5 year period (1989-1993) under semi-intensive management at the Estate Management Unit farm of Botswana College of Agriculture (Sebele, Gaborone, Botswana). 170 lambings and 152 kiddings involving 202 lambs and 288 kids were analysed. The parameters studied were: age at first lambing/kidding, lambing interval, annual lambing rate, birth weight and correlation between ewe/doe weight and lamb/kid birth weight.
