The aim of present study was to assess Growth, Productive and Reproductive Performance of Goats in Tribal Areas of Rajasthan. A total of 120 tribal goat farmers were selected from 12 villages of 6 blocks in 3 tribal dominated districts viz., Banswara, Dungarpur and Udaipur. Ten farmers from each village were selected purposively based on the number of goats. The average body weight at birth, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 12 months of age were 2.48 ± 0.05, 12.10 ± 0.15, 16.63 ± 0.29, 21.11 ± 0.28 and 25.92 ± 0.13 kg/ in male goat respectively, whereas, in females, it was 2.01 ± 0.04, 10.85 ± 0.14, 16.79 ± 0.27, 20.16 ± 0.15 and 23.43 ± 0.15 kg/female goat, respectively. The ADG in males goats in the farmers flock from birth to 3 months, 3- 6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 month and overall birth to 12 months were 99.99, 64.41, 52.63, 45.41 and 65.61 gm respectively, whereas, in females, values of ADG from birth to 3 months, 3 - 6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 month and overall (birth to 12 month) were 95.59, 66.78, 45.63, 46.48 and 63.62 (gm), respectively. The overall daily milk yield (ml/goat), total lactation yield (lit), lactation length (days) and weight of buck at sale (kg) was 608.41 ± 10.62, 75.73 ± 0.81, 137.27 ± 2.66 and 25.40 ± 0.35, respectively. The overall service period (days), dry period (days), kidding interval (days) and gestation period (days) and age at first kidding (months) was 123.85±1.81, 65.17±1.36, 218.05±2.87, 148.65±1.12 and 18.24±0.15 respectively.
