Abstract

This study was conducted on Black Bengal and crossbred goats thrives in the western part of Bangladesh for comparative evaluation of their carcass yield and meat quality. Thirty male goats (15 Black Bengal and 15 crossbreds) slaughtered in the slaughter house of Rajshahi city corporation were evaluated for carcass quantity and quality. The average slaughtering age was 12.60 and 12.40 months, and dressing percentage 43.71% and 45.86% for Black Bengal and crossbred goats, respectively. Crossbred goats had significantly (P<0.01%) higher dressing percentage than the Black Bengal goats. The total edible and non edible portions of Black Bengal and crossbred goats did not differ significantly (p>0.05). The percentage of moisture, crude protein, ether extract and ash contents were 72.79, 21.90, 3.72 and 1.15 for Black Bengal goat and 73.46, 20.85, 4.51 and 1.08 for crossbred goats, respectively. There was no significant difference (p>0.05) among moisture, crude protein, ash content (%) of Black Bengal and Crossbred goats. However, the carcass of crossbred goats contained more fat (ether extract) (p<0.05) compared to the Black Bengal goat. The higher carcass yield and dressing percentage observed in crossbred goats reflected to yield more meat compared to the Black Bengal goat.
