Non-Genetic Factors Affecting Morphometric Traits in Marwari Goats under Field Conditions

Hemlata Chouhan, Gyanchand Gahlot, Vijay Kumar Agrawal, Manoj Kumar, Govind Singh Dhakad.

The present study was aimed to estimate the effect of various non-genetic factors affecting morphometric traits in Marwari goats under field condition. The morphological information (during 1990 to 2015) pertaining to Marwari goats (n=36,566) during different stages of life, viz., birth, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 18 months, 24 months and adult (>2 years) was collected from farmer’s flock maintained under AICRP-Goat Project. The effect of different non-genetic factors was estimated through least square analysis method of general linear model. The effect of cluster and year of birth was found to be highly significant (P≤ 0.01) on all the morphometric traits for all age groups. Body height at all age group was significantly affected by the season of birth. Season of birth significantly affected the body length and heart girth at all stages except birth. The sex of kid significantly (P≤ 0.01) affected the height at birth, 3, 6, 9, 18, 24, on length at birth, 3, 6, 9, 24 and adult ages, on heart girth at 3, 6, 9, 12 months. The different non-genetic factors significantly affected the morphometric features in Marwari goats.

Key words: Morphometric traits, Non-genetic factor, Marwari goat.
