AbstractThree different rations of dry bread were used in this study: 9%, 12% and 15% for three fattening periods: 1-45 days, 1-90 days, and 1- 135 days. Results showed that there was a significant difference in the average of body weight when the percentage of the three rations of dried bread was changed. Third group (15% dried bread) significantly (P≤0.05) through fattening period of 1- 90 days for the average weight gain in comparison to other groups. A significant difference (P≤0.05) in the median weight of the goats at the fattening period of 1-135 days, while 1-90 days fattening period recorded a median weight equal to 29.607kg and minimum fattening period of 1-45 days was recorded a median of 27.865 kg. Height of the body has a high significant effect (P≤0.01) at level 15% dry bread in comparison with the other rations.
Additionally statistical analysis pointed out a differences (P≤0.05) of fattening period 1-135 days on the characteristics of the kids body (chest, size and height of buttock and length of body) sizes in comparing with other fattening periods. A high significant difference (P≤0.05)during the fattening period of 1- 135 days to body measurements represented by abdomen and height at front in comparison to the two previously mentioned characteristics for fattening periods
