This study was conducted to determine the levels of serum total cholesterol in Hair goats in different gender and age ranges. For this purpose, the blood samples from 120 Hair goats, young (£ 6 months) and adult (2-4 years), which were found to be clinically healthy, were taken from the vena jugularis. Triglyceride, total cholesterol, HDL and LDL cholesterol levels were measured in sera samples. The mean values in adult female goats, young female goats, adult male goats and young male goats were found. Triglyceride levels were found to be higher in male goats than in females. It was observed that the HDL values   obtained from male kids were lower than the other ones. The LDL results obtained from the goats were close to each other and statistically insignificant. Thus, in this study, the data obtained is considered to contribute to the formation of reference values in the Hair goats.
