ABSTRACT
The aim of this study was to determine relationships between some udder traits [Undder Bottom Height (UBH), Udder Depth (UD), Udder Circumference (UC), Left Teat Circumference (LTC), Right Teat Circumference (RTC) and Teat Angle (TA)] and Daily Milk Yields (DMY) of Akke?i goats. For this purpose, data were collected from 30 goats. Correlations and path analysis were executed for identify the significant contribution of the udder traits on daily milk yields. As a result, this study indicated that these traits especialy, udder circumference and udder bottom height could be used as selection criterias for milk yields in Akke?i goats.
