ABSTRACT: Lampung Province is an area that has the potency for the development of farm businesses. One of suitable animals to be developed in Lampung Province is goat. The success of business development of farm animal cannot be separated from the inluence of genetic and environmental factors. One effort that can be taken to improve the genetic quality of the goat is through crossbreeding. Crossbreeding is one of good way to improve animal production. Crossbreeding between female Ettawah grade goats and male boer goats are known with the name Boerawa goat. Currently Boerawa goat are developed in Tanggamus District Lampung Province. The results of crossbreeding are expected to have higher performance than Ettawah grade goat. High performance of growth is the result of genetic inheritance of Boer goats that have superior growth characteristics. This research was conducted using survey method in Gisting, Tanggamus District Lampung Province. Qualitative data on the morphological characteristics and performance in a descriptive analysis from observations indicate that the morphological characteristics of goats crossing at the post weaning period is better. It can be seen from some morphological parameters that were observed, among others; body length, shoulder height, chest circumference, and of aspects of performance; litter size, birth weight, and ADG also showed signiicant improvement in this Boerawa goat
