A study by objective to promote the performance of PE goat as a prime slaughter goat, has been carried out by introducing the genetic of Boer goat to 20 Peranakan Etawa (PE) mother goat crossbreedingly by using Artificial Insemination. Further, the productive performance of crossbreed kids yealded are observed intensively. The results of this experiment shows that the crossbreed kids birth weight reach the average of 3.30 kg’s, depend on sex and litter size and number of the crossbreed kids weaned (weaning percentage) reach 85%. Crossbreeding between PE and Boer goat examined in this study could promote the grade of The PE goat, this looked from the average weaning weight of the crossbreed goat reach 21.2 kg’s, also looked from the average body dimension of the crossbreed goat that shows body dimension, body length and body height each 53.5; 53,2 and 54.1 cm’s respectively, each depend on sex and litter size. The composite goat yealded from crossbreeding between PE and Boer goat in this experiment shows average pre-weaning growth rate (based on ADG) 0.27 kg, highly significance higher than growth rate of local and other crossbreed goat, which is indicate good ability and prospect for prime stockbreeder of slaughter goat.
