This study describes the genetic structure from the haemoglobin (Hb) locus in West African Dwarf (WAD) goat using Cellulose acetate electrophoresis. Three genotypes were identified: the fast haemoglobin named HbA type, theintermediate migration labelled HbAB type and the slow haemoglobin designated HbB type. These genotypes weredetermined by the two co-dominant alleles, HbA and HbB. The two alleles control three haemoglobin genotypes: twohomozygotes, HbAA and HbBB, and one heterozygote, HbAB. The allele HbB had a higher frequency of occurrence(74%) than the allele HbA (26%). The HbBB had a higher incidence in the population (58%) in comparison withtheother two genotypes; the HbAB had a moderate frequency (32%) and HbAA had the least occurrence (10%). Theobserved heterozygosity (0.32) was lower than the expected heterozygosity (0.38) in the current study, the test forHardy-Weinberg equilibrium was not significant (P > 0.05).
