Some observations on oestrus manifestations in the red Sokoto goat red Sokoto goat is predominantly reddish brown in colour and there are over 17 million individuals and they are value for their skin which is used for the internationally recognized morocco leather [3]. This study evaluated the usefulness of morphological characteristics to distinguish two important indigenous goat breeds in Nigeria. Figure 41 Lactation curves of Red Sokoto goats having given birth to single or twin kids (smooth curves represent Wood's gamma function) MEAT. Twelve intact RS buck goats with an average live-weight of 18.00 + 0.65 Kg were allocated to these post-slaughter processing treatments. A study on carcass characteristics of Red Sokoto (RS) Buck goat as affected by singeing, scalding and skinning was carried out. The Red Maradi goat is a particularly much sought after animal species. Parameters like temperature, pH, dressing percentage, wholesale cuts, Water Holding Capacity (WHC) among others, were taken. The cerebellar mean length 4.9 ± 0.13cm, was close to its width 4.4 ± 0.16cm were very close. The namesake comes from the Kalahari desert, which spans the borders of Botswana, South Africa, and Namibia. The ascending phase milk yield characteristics were evaluated in Red Sokoto goats using 120-day milk yield records obtained from a total of 92 lactating does in 6 herds, collected over a two-year period. Dressing percentage: 45-50; 44.7-48.6 at 20.5-25.0 kg live weight for Bornu White and 43.7-48.1 at 19.8-24.2 kg live weight for Red Sokoto at Maiduguri abattoir; young male castrates 54-55. Kalahari Red Goat Breed information: Introduction to Kalahari Red Goat Breed: The Kalahari Red is a meat-type goat strain which originated in South Africa. However, read more information about this cattle breed below. The ascending phase milk yield characteristics were evaluated in Red Sokoto goats using 120 days milk yield records obtained from a total of 92 lactating does in 6 herds, collected over a two year period. Anim. and Oni, O.O. Twelve intact RS buck goats with an average live-weight of 18.00 + 0.65 Kg were allocated to these post-slaughter processing treatments.Parameters like temperature, pH, dressing percentage, wholesale cuts, Water Holding Capacity (WHC) among others, … White Fulani Cattle Characteristics A study on carcass characteristics of Red Sokoto (RS) Buck goat as affected by singeing, scalding and skinning was carried out. 2000. The kids of red Sokoto goat weigh between 1.5-2.0kg at birth while the adult weigh 20-35kg [4]. Ascending phase lactation characteristics of red sokoto goats: J. Appl. Throughout history, Sokoto goat has been the premier vegetable tanned goat available (see Report of the Committee on Leather for Bookbinding, Royal Society of Arts, London 1905. Abstract Akpa, G.N., Asiribo, O.E. Whatever the opinions are, these animals are mostly Zebu but of Sanga cattle origin. And the White Fulani and Red Fulani cattle breeds are quite separate. The mild yield characteristics of smallholder agropastoral Fulani Red Sokoto goats were evaluated using records obtained from a total of 92 does in 6 herds, collected over a 2-year period. Because these skins come from Nigeria, a region in political turmoil, they are very difficult to obtain. The results indicated that the total yield was 79.8±3.2 kg, the daily yield 0.66±0.03 kg, the peak yield 1.21±0.07 kg and the day of peak production 28.7±2.1 day of lactation. If reared in good conditions the Red goat multiplies faster. Twin and biannual kidding are common and sustained over 5 to 6 years for a good female. Productive Characteristics. Several explanations can be given for the choice of this animal by farmers as well as by consumers. They are separate both in the locations they are kept and in origin. Morphological analysis of the cerebellar cortex was done on the red Sokoto goats, with the aim of providing reference baseline data in this species. Results from the nine cerebella examined revealed the mean cerebellar weight of 10.2 ± 0.38g, this accounted for 14% of the total brain weight. Fifteen morphometric traits were measured on West African Dwarf – WAD (n = 160) and Red Sokoto – RS (n = 142) goats that ranged in … Res., 18: 177–184.
