Forty five adult does were divided into three groups of 15 does each. Group I was the control animals without any concentrate supplementation, whereas Group II and III were supplemented with 100 grams and 200 grams of concentrate mixture 30 days pre-partum and 30 days post-partum respectively in addition to ad libitum roughage feeding. The individual body weight of does was recorded from 30th day of pre-partum to 30 days of post-partum in 15 days intervals. Birth weight of kid, weaning weight and kid mortality were also recorded. It was observed that 200 grams concentrate supplementation improved both pre-partum and post-partum body condition of goats and had positive impact on growth performance of kids and reduced kid mortality.
