Content: The major breeds of goats in Indonesia are the Kacang (Lokal) goat and Peranakan Etawah. Kacang is a local breed of goat found in Indonesia. The population of Kacang is widely distributed over the whole archipelago and adapted to a wide range of management conditions and feeding regimes. Peranakan Etawah goats originally descend from crossings between the Kacang (Lokal) with Etwah goats (imported from India). Animals of this population are distinctly different from the Kacang goats.

The general aim in the management of an animal production unit is to increase the productivity. This goal may be achieved by one of, or as a combination of two approaches. These are: to improve average production by improving aspects of management so that the genetic potential of the animals may be expressed as fully as possible and to change the production potential of the animal population by the introduction of new genotypes.

The purposes of the studies are: to find out the production and reproduction levels of the two goat breeds under the village production system and to identify factors affecting the production and reproduction level of the two goat breeds.
