Özet

This study was carried out to compare the reproductive performance of Saanen goats under rural (n:75) and intensive (n:206) management systems in Elazig region. Single and multiple births, stillbirth, dystocia, abortion and kids survival rates were determined in both the goat flocks between February 1 and April 30 2011. Percentages of single and multiple births, stillbirth, dystocia and abortion were not statistically different between the flocks. However, the kids survival rates of intensive management system (74.05%) were lower than rural management system (88.88%), (P<0.003). Overall percentage of single and multiple births, stillbirth, dystocia, abortion and kids survival in all goats were 45.08, 54.92, 17.62, 12.29, 13.16 and 78.40%, respectively. Our results show that rural and intensive management systems do not have an important effect on reproductive performance of Saanen goats. (c) 2012 PVJ. All rights reserved
