It was revealed that there were three breeds of Ha Giang local goats found in our study, they are prolificacy, polled and long hair goats. The phenotypes of coats of Ha Giang local goats were much diversified among and within breeds. There were thee major coats existing: yellow, black and brown. Polled goats were slightly heavier than long hair and prolificacy goats. However, prolificacy Does appeared to have the most prolific goats. The number kid/ litter and number of litter/does/year of prolificacy does were higher than these of polled and long hair does. The dressing and lean meat percentage of polled goats were higher than these of prolificacy and long hair goats. (Résumé d'auteur)
