Abstract

We set the aim to study the effect of the blood influx of large gray geese and legart geese breeds on the productive qualities of the obroshyno breed group of geese in the third generation) and the legarts that have been highlighted in our previous publications. With the descendants of these crosses breeding and breeding work was conducted in the direction of breeding and productive qualities improvement. For our research, four groups of 50 birds each were compiled from the livestock of geese, which were kept separately for the breeding and egg laying periods (from January to May) to ensure proper feeding and retention. The average geese live weight at the beginning of oviposition were: females OS – 6.25 kg, OB – 6.35, OS ♀ (OS ♀ x BC ♂) – 6.45, OB ♀ (OB ♀ x legart) – 6.5; males OS – 7.15 kg, OB – 7.35, OS ♂ (OS ♀ x BC ♂) – 7.45, OB ♂ (OB ♀ x legart ♂) – 7.50 kg. The duration of oviposition was higher in purebred geese (groups I and III) compared to domestic geese (groups II and IV). The average oviposition of the group I geese was highest – 41.0 pcs/head and was dominated by the group II geese by 1.2%. The weight of OS of geese of group III amounted to 40.6 pcs/head and was dominated by local geese of group IV by 2.9%. However, domestic geese (groups II and IV), by weight of eggs, outperformed purebred geese (groups I and III) by 2.1 and 4.5%, respectively. The study of incubation qualities of eggs shows that the fertilization in purebred AB and OS geese (groups I and III) was 83.9% and 83.0%, and the analogues from II and IV groups prevailed by 0.4 and 0.5%, respectively. The higher hatchability of the geese was in hybrid geese (groups II and IV) than in purebred OBS and geese OS (groups I and III). On the basis of the conducted researches the following conclusions were made: 1. The productivity of geese AB of the breed group (group I) is characterized by the following performance indicators: oviposition – 40.6 pcs. per head; egg weight – 153.2 g; fertilization – 83.5%; deductibility – 71.8%; live weight of geese at 9 weeks of age – males 4.05 kg, females – 3.67 kg; conservation – 87.0%. 2. Local geese of OB x legart (group II) had lower productivity rates: by 2.9%, they had a low fertility rate of 0.5%; fertility – 1.5%; live weight of geese at 9 weeks of age: males – 6.7%, females – 4.6%; conservation – 2.0%; at higher egg mass by 2.1%. 3. Geese of the OS of the breed group (group III) are characterized by the following performance indicators: oviposition – 40.6 pcs. per head; egg weight – 153.2 g; fertilization – 83.0%; excretion rate – 71.0%; live weight of geese at 9 weeks of age – males 4.05 kg, females – 3.67 kg; conservation – 87.0%. 4. Local geese OS x ВS (group IV) are characterized by lower indicators, respectively: with a yield of 2.9%, higher fertilization – 0.5%; with a yield of 1.5%; live weight of geese at 9 weeks of age: males – 6.7%, females – 4.6%; conservation – by 2.0%; at higher egg mass by 4.5%.
