Abstract

In this study; udder measurements, total amount of milking and milk composition of Saanen x Hair goat Fi crossbreed were examined The study data were obtained from 47 head goats in the 2nd and 3rd parity. Correlations between total amount of milking and udder width, udder circumference, udder length and angle between two teats were identified as 0.598, 0.662, 0.574 and 0.497, respectively (P<0.01). It was determined that there was a positive correlation between the protein rate of milk and total milking amount (0.293), lactose (0.394) and fat-free dry matter (0.648). Whereas a negative correlation was identified between the protein rate of milk and pH value (-0.358) (P<0.05 ; P<0.01).
