The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of crossbreeding indigenous Hair Goat with Saanen on carcass quality characteristics of kids under an intensive production system. Twenty four male kids from purebred Hair Goat and Saanen × Hair Goat (F1 and B1) crossbred genotypes were weaned at 75-80 days of age and fattened for 56 days. Slaughter weights were 17.42, 18.22 and 16.79 kg and chilled carcass weights were 6.49, 7.29 and 6.69 kg for Hair Goat, F1 and B1, respectively. The organ weights, dressing percentages, M. longissimus dorsi area, fatness parameters, carcass measurements, subcutaneous fat colour, carcass joint weights and percentages and dissected leg compositions of kids were similar (P>0.05) in genotype groups. It is concluded that crossbreeding indigenous Hair Goat with Saanen at F1 and B1 levels did not result in any improvement in quality carcass production of kids under an intensive production system.
