Goat Saanen Productivity at the Dairy and Forage National Breeding Centre Baturraden, Central Java, Indonesia
This study aimed to determine the productivity of the Saanen goat, which was carried out at the dairy and forage national breeding centre (BBPTU-HPT) in Baturraden, Central Java, Indonesia. The variables observed were birth weight, litter size and type of birth. This research used the historical survey method. Samples were taken using purposive sampling. The bucks and does mean birth weights were 2.81 ± 0.64 and 2.66 ± 0.66 kg, respectively. The average litter size was 1.35 ± 0.51, where litter size parity 1, 2 and 3 were 1.15 ± 0.48, 1.37 ± 0.63 and 1.53 ± 0.42 kids. Single birth is relatively lower (48%) than twins (52%). The conclusion of this research was that the birth weight of males was higher than females; the litter size increased with increasing parity; the type of single birth had a higher birth weight than twins.
