India Possess 135.1 million goats which comes to about 14.66 percent of world population . The body measurements indicate the skeletal growth of the animals. The present study was undertaken on Osmanabadi goat in the breeding tract i.e. Nanded, Latur, Osmanabad, Beed and Parbhani districts of Marathwada region in Maharashtra state. The present work were carried out on the body weight and measurements of 124 Osmanabadi goats at 0-3 and 217 Osmanabadi goats at 4-6 months of age for different sex (male and female), type of birth (Single, Twin, Triplet or Quadriplet), breed strains (Entire black & horned, Entire black & polled, Entire black, horned & spotted ear, Entire black, polled & spotted ear and Tan coloured), at different locations in the breeding tract and horned/ polled condition. The overall Least Square Means of body weight, body length, chest girth, paunch girth, height at wither for the Osmanabadi kids at 0 to 3 months of age were recorded as 3.75 0.11 kg, 27.42 0.29 cm, 30.690.41, 34.27 0.47 cm, 36.45 0.39 cm and 4 to 6 months 9.29 0.16 kg, 41.60 0.30 cm, 41.60 0.30 cm, 47.62 0.38 cm, 50.60 0.34 cm. The non-significant effect of different sources on the body weight and significant to highly significant effect of sex and districts on the different body measurements may lead to the concrete conclusion that these factors play a major role in exhibiting the specific body measurements.

Key words: Osmanabadi goat, Body measurements, Body weight, Body length, Chest girth, Paunch girth, Height at wither, Height at pin bone
