This study aimed to phenotypically characterize the Philippine Native, Upgraded, Anglo Nubian Boer, and Saamen goats. A total of 118 goats from 14 goat semi-intensive farms were used. Qualitative data were analyzed using descriptive analysis while the quantitative traits using Scheffe’s test. Results showed variations in the phenotypic characteristics of a goat gene pool. Saanen had longer body length significantly, and higher wither height. Saanen and Boer goats appeared to have higher heart girth. Saanen and Anglo-Nubian had significantly higher testicel circumference and tall length. Boer, Anglo Nubian, Upgraded and Philippine Native goats have predominantly mixed color, while Saanen goats have solid coat color. The nose bridge width and ear length (EL) of Anglo-Nubian goats were significantly more dense and longer. The EL of bucks were significantly longer than the EL of does. More than half of the Anglo-Nubian, Upgraded and Philippine Native Boer and Saanen buck have horn while the majority of the does are dehorned. Regardless of sex, the majority of the Boer and Upgraded goats have droopy ears while more than half of the AngloNubian goats have droopy ears. All Saanen and Philippine native goats have erect ears. Findings can serve as a basis for the establishment of further goat characterization, conservation, improvement and specific trait selection strategies for future breeding programs.
