Abstract:

To study the effect of different weaning systems on carcass traits of Tellicherry goats 42 Tellicherry kids were allocated to three treatment groups viz. Group 1- Late weaning (at three month); Group 2- Mid weaning (at two month) and Group 3- Early weaning (at one month). Different weaning system had non-significant (p>0.05) effect on pre-slaughter weight, empty live body weight, carcass weight, dressing percentage and carcass length. Dressing percentage in Tellichery goat was 38.66±0.66 % irrespective of weaning system. Leg portion (33.53±0.66%) contributed the highest proportion followed by breast and shank, rack, neck, shoulder, loin and flank. There was no significant difference (p>0.05) between treatments in weight of edible and non-edible offals. Among non-edible offal, hide had the highest proportion (8.78±0.31%) on pre-slaughter weight basis.
