Twenty Jamunapari goats were reared in the institute goat farm in semi-intensive system of management to study the productive performance of goat under the system. It was observed that average live weight of grower uncastrated male kids at birth, 3, 6, 9 and 12 th months of age were 2.94 ± 0.19, 8.97 ± 0.53, 15.47 ± 0.66, 18.63 ± 0.44 and 22.48 ± 0.64 kg respectively. Average daily gain during the year was found to be highest in first week ie 110.67 ± 6.52 g / day with an average value of 47.41 ± 3.76 g / day. ANOVA revealed that age had highly significant (P uced by 46.11 g / d (P (P 01) respectively per 0 C rise of effective temperature.
