خلاصه مقاله:
A study was conducted to characterize autochthonous goats of the semi-arid zone of North-western Nigeria for their meat potential. Thirty two intact male goats representing eight replicates of twobreeds (Sokoto Red and Sahel) and two ages (young and mature) were investigated for carcass and meat yield characteristics. Breedhad no significant effect on carcass weight, carcass yield, fleshing index, loin eye area and total edible portion (P>0.05). Sahel goatswere however heavier and had higher empty body weight (EBW) than Sokoto Red goats, which were superior in body mass index(BMI) (P<0.05). Slaughter weight, EBW, BMI, carcass weight, fleshing index and loin eye area were significantly higher in mature goats,while young goats had a higher proportion of total edible portion. Dressing percent and total saleable portion were not affected bybreed or age. It was found that age had a greater influence on yield characteristics of meat goats of the Semi-arid zone of North-western Nigeria than breed. Availability of scientific information on meat characteristics of indigenous goat breeds will facilitate development efforts to improve the quality of life in developing countries
