Aim: The Research was undertaken to find the association between FecB and high prolificacy in Raighar goats.

Materials and Methods: DNA was extracted from blood, collected from does (n=101) with history of high prolificacy.
Further tetra-primer amplification refractory mutation system (T-ARMS) PCR and agarose gel electrophoresis were followed
to screen the mutation.

Results: Raighar goats were found to be wild homozygotes suggesting absence of FecB mutation.

Conclusion: Prolificacy in case of Raighar goats is not due to the mutation at FecB locus. It is thought to search for other
genes or loci in goat fecundity.

Key words: FecB, mutation, prolificacy, Raighar goat
