In Alpine-Malahari crossbred goats, the weight of ovary during the four different phases of oestrous cycle showed no significant difference. The weight was apparently more on 18th day of the cycle when number of medium and large sized follicles were also more. Small sized follicles were seen during all the four phasas of oestrous cycle. Weight and measurements of different parts of tubular genitalia during different pluses of oestrous cycle and the weight of pituitary, adrenal and thyroid glands are also reported.
