Abstract
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of some production factors on commercial production of Etawah Crossbred Goats (ECG) of Inpres Desa Tertinggal member groups (AKIDT) at Krasak, Pandansari, Brajan, and Kragilan villages in Boyolali regency, Central Java, Indonesia. The study was from February to April 2000. Eighty respondents of AKIDT were selected by simple random sampling and the data were analyzed using Cobb Douglas Production Function. The results showed that ECG production simultaneously were highly significant (p<0.01) influenced by amount of feed consumed (kg TDN/year, x1), number of does of ECG (Animal Unit/year, x2), number of kids and does/ barn/year (Animal Unit/year, x3), labor use (man-days/year, x4) and work capital (US$/year, x5) with R2= 0.6568. In addition, ECG production was partially influenced by x2, x3 and x5 (p<0.01) and x1 (p<0.05), but not significant (p>0.05) by x4. Technically, production factors of x1, x2, x3, x4, x5 had reached technique efficiency (0
