Abstract

Thirty-two kid goats of the Granadina breed were used in four trials of three factors: milk type (goat milk and milk replacer), intake level (1·86 and 2·48 maintenance) and slaughter age (15, 30, 45 and 60 days). Weaning was carried out between the 31st and 45th days. The composition of the carcass and its different cuts and the development of the stomach compartments were studied.

Both the high intake level and use of goat milk produced a statistically greater fat proportion in the carcass. At 30 days of age in kids given goat milk at the high intake level the fat proportion of the carcass was 130 g/kg. The variations in bone proportions were inverse to those for fat. The muscle proportions were affected by age, overall. The tissue composition of the different cuts showed similar responses to those in the carcass. The stomach compartments were affected most by age.

The results show that kids of the Granadina breed have a good fattening capacity. The feeding and weaning system used here produced kids by 60 days of age with stomach compartments similar in proportion to those of adult goats.
