Abstract


High incidence of Hb-A was observed in Tellicherry and non-descript goats. Haemoglobin types like A, B and C were observed and all of them were genetically homozygous in Tellicherry breed, whereas in non-descript goats heterozygous haemoglobin type (Hb-AB) was observed. Erythrocytic values of heterozygous goats were predominant over homozygous goats. Haemoglobin F showed fastest anodal mobility followed by type A, C and B.
