Özet

This investigation was carried out in order to simultaneously compare various production traits of Saanen x hair crossbred goats and pure hair goat flocks under rural environmental conditions. Fecundity, fertility and infertility values for Saanen x hair crossbred and pure hair goats were 1.25, 1.30 and 4.47%, and 0.72, 0.79 and 21.00%, respectively. The effects of genotype, year and age on fecundity, fertility and infertility for Saanen x hair crossbred and pure hair goats were significant (P < 0,01). Birth and weaning weights for Saanen x hair crossbred and pure hair kids were 3.70 kg and 2.63 kg, and 14.68 kg and 12.12 kg, respectively. The effects of genotype, year and age on the birth and weaning weights for Saanen x hair crossbred and pure hair kids were significant (P < 0.01, P < 0.05, respectively). The survival rates for Saanen x hair crossbred and pure hair kids were 95.76% and 78.61%, respectively. Daily average milk yield, lactation length and lactation milk yield in Saanen x hair crossbred and pure hair goats were; 1.83 kg, 201.5 days and 201.77 kg, and 0.56 kg, 143.7 days and 80.47 kg, respectively. The effects of genotype, year and age on the daily average milk yield, lactation length and lactation milk yield for Saanen x hair crossbred and pure hair goats were significant (P < 0.01).
