The present study was designed to phenotypically characterize the Jayawadagi goat and its comparison with the Osmanabadi goat breed present along with the Jayawadagi goat in their breeding tract. The present study comprised survey data from 100 adult Jayawadagi goats and 100 adult Osmanabadi goats. Information regarding body weight, body length, height at withers, chest girth, flank width, ear length, ear width, horn length and tail length were collected, recorded and analysed. The study revealed that 89 per cent of Jayawadagi goats are black and have typical upward, laterally oriented horns with a slight curve at the tip. The overall body weight, body length, height at withers, chest girth, and flank width of Jayawadagi goats were 43.13 Kg, 74.18,79.40, 83.74 and 14.76 cm, respectively while in the Osmanabadi goat breed, they were 39.81 Kg, 69.92, 76.08, 81.08 and 14.63 cm, respectively. Similarly, the ear length, ear width, horn length and tail length of Jayawadagi goats were 19.13, 8.48, 18.04, and 18.67 cm, respectively while in the Osmanabadi goat breed they were 18.03, 8.07, 14.32 and 16.53 cm, respectively. The body measurements were significantly higher in Jayawadagi goats compared to the Osmanabadi goat breed.
