An experiment was conducted to evaluate the carcass characteristics of Salem Black kids under
intensive and semi-intensive systems of management. Sixteen weaned kids were selected at
random and they were placed in two treatments comprising of eight kids in each group. The dressing
percentage of intensive and semi-intensively reared kids differed highly significantly(P less than 0.01). The
primal cuts percentage did not differ significantly for leg, loin, rack, breast and fore shank and the
neck and shoulder. The loin eye area was highly significant (P less than 0.01) between intensive and semiintensively
reared kids. The kidney and omental fat was significantly (Pless than0.05 and P less than 0.01 ) higher
in intensive system when compared compare to semi-intensive system of rearing.
