Abstract: The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of some non-genetic factors on average daily weight gain in Sirohi kids during preweaning and post weaning age. Total 3714 data were collected from the records maintained under All India Coordinated Research Project (AICRP) on goat improvement at Livestock research station, Vallabhnagar, Udaipur (Rajasthan). Year of birth and sex of kid had highly significant (p<0.01) effect on average daily gain (ADG) in pre weaning (0-3 months) and post-weaning stages (3-6, 6-9, 9-12 and 3-12 months). Season had non-significant (p>0.05) effect on ADG in preweaning stage and highly significant (p<0.01) effect on ADG in all post weaning stages. Type of birth had non-significant (p>0.05) effect on ADG in preweaning stage whereas significant (p>0.05) in post-weaning stages except 6-9 months of age. Parity of dam had highly significant effect on ADG in preweaning stage.
