|Series/Report no.:||volume 9 numéro 1 2019;|
|Abstract:||In order to determine the reproductive performance of the Arbia goat as well as the farm management practices, the study was carried out in Algeria Southeast regions. For the data collection, the method of surveys of farmers on the different parameters of breeding and breeding behavior was adopted. According to this study, it is generally found that the traditional system remains the dominant practice, the farms are mixed, 31.57% of the goat herds are of more than 45 heads (male and female) of different categories; the average age is 3.5 years for goats and 2.5 years for goats. The sex ratio for all farms is estimated at 11 goats per male. For the reproductive performance of the studied goat, the fecundity, prolificacy, fertility, abortion and mortality rates were respectively: 112.38%, 136.09%, 92.20%, 11.29% and 18.69%. It can be deduced that the reproductive performance obtained reflects the practices quality of the breeders towards their animals and it is closely linked to the breeding conditions. A little improvement of the operations carried out allows an improvement of the reproductive and productive performances at the same time.|
