Abstract: Twelve Osmanabadi male goats were obtained from the ILFC, College of Veterinary and Animal Science, Parbhani, with the goal of studying the carcass features and meat quality of these goats. Goats were divided into two groups based on weight and age. Group I (6 months old): 18-20 kg; group II (8 months old): 23-25 kg. The study found that slaughter weight had a substantial influence on proximate protein and fat composition, but as age progressed from 6 to 8 months, protein, fat, and ash content rose. There was no significant change in moisture percentage between the two groups, however when the beef ages from 6 to 8 months, its moisture content decreases. The physiochemical parameters include water retaining.
