Abstract

This study was undertaken to establish a database for improving goat production in Bali. A survey was conducted from January to June 2014 on 68 farmers integrated with farm commodities, owning a total of 258 goats in Mendoyo District. Data on flock dynamics were 49 kidding occurrences in 2014 delivered 67 kids; 67% were single born, 29% were twins and 4% were triplets/quadruplets. The kids were a mixture of Gembrong, Benggala, Kacang, Etawah, and PE that had a 24% mortality rate. Litter size was on average 1.37 kids from does with 1 st to 6 th parity. Kids were housed in battery systems and fed fresh roughages with cut and carry feeding systems. The average bodyweights of female weaners 22.9±1.6 kg were significantly lower (P<0.01) than of male weaners 29.8±1.9 kg at day 135. This growth was supported by the abundance of available feed, and the housing used meant low incidence of parasites as indicated by FAMACHA © scores which were generally low (P<0.01). Fourteen goats were sold for IDR 22 M. Smallholder farmers in Mendoyo District reared goats in small flocks as the farmers had just re-started rearing goats again resulting in inefficient goat production, particularly when labour costs were included.
