Reproductive performance on Sirohi goats is being carried out in farmers flock maintained in 16 villages of four clusters in Udaipur and Rajasamand districts of Southern Rajasthan. Reproductive records distributed over 5 years on 1169 goats were utilized for the present study. The overall mean for reproduction traits viz., age at first conception, age at first kidding, service period, dry period, kidding interval and gestation period were 546.41±9.13, 698.31±9.10, 206.23±3.26, 197.64±3.18, 356.21±0.32 and 150.16±0.07 days respectively. The sire had significant effect on all reproductive traits except GP. The effect of location was significant found on AFC, AFK and GP, while the effect of year of kidding was significantly on all reproductive traits under study. Season of kidding had significant effect on KI, DP, and SP. The effect of sire, location, year of kidding and parity was significant on all reproductive traits. It was concluded that this breed has proved as excellent goat breed with respect to disease resistance, adaptability to dry and hot climate, growth and lactation performance under poor quality range condition.
