Abstract:

The present study was carried out at Livestock Research Station, Bojunda, Chittorgarh district of Rajasthan on twenty-one Sirohi goat kids of about 6 months of age with uniform body weight. The overall average time of different behavioural patterns as grazing, browsing, drinking urinating and sleeping behaviour of Sirohi goat kids in the extensive group (T1) was found to be 53.68, 226.38, 6.92, 3.01 and 378.24 (min/ day), respectively. The overall average time of different behavioural patterns as grazing, browsing, drinking urinating and sleeping behaviour of Sirohi goat kids in the semi-intensive group (T2) group was recorded to be 48.31, 217.42, 6.89, 3.01 and 375.96 (min/day), respectively. The overall daily average time of different behavioural patterns like drinking, urination and sleeping behaviour of Sirohi goat kids in the intensive (T3) group was found to be 5.94, 3.04 and 496.19 (min/day), respectively. Behavioural time (min/day) for grazing and browsing in extensive (T1) group was significantly (P<0.01) higher than semi-intensive (T2) group. Behavioural time (min/day) for drinking in extensive (T1) group and semiintensive (T2) group was significantly (P<0.01) higher than intensive (T3) group. The urination behaviour found non-significant difference among groups of three feeding management systems of Sirohi goat kids. Behavioural time (min/day) for sleeping in intensive (T3) group was significantly (P<0.01) higher than
extensive (T1) group and semi-intensive (T2) group.
