Abstract

The aim of this investigation was to determine the gain and slaughter quality of the kids of the domestic Balkan goat and its crossbreeds with alpine breed All male kids (from domestic Balkan breed and F1 crossbreeds between domestic Balkan breed and Alpine breed) were fed and maintained in the same conditions. After the slaughter, the measurements of each carcass, were made. The results show significant differences in birth weight of domestic Balkan breed (3,24 kg) and F1 crossbreeds between domestic Balkan breed and Alpine breed (2,67 kg). Dressing percentage was found lower (51,94%) with pH1 6,56 and pH2 5,90 in domestic Balkan kids compared to Alpine kids (57,61%) with pH1 6,40 (pH of hot carcass) and pH2 5,76 (pH of cold carcass). Muscle tissue in three rib cut of kids was 49,46 %, fat tissue 17,35% and bones 33,19% in domestic Balkan kids. Muscle tissue from F1 crossbreeds was 55,57%, fat tissue 18,19% and bones 26,54%.
