In this study whole blood potassium and haemoglobin (Hb) polymorphism were investigated in the Hair goats raised in the Antalya province The separation of erythrocyte haemoglobin types was carried out using horizontal starch gel electrophoresis and the determination of the potassium level was done using an atomic absorption spectrometer in randomly chosen whole blood samples of 188 Hair goats The gene frequency for the higher potassium (KH) was 0 985 +/- 0 038 As a result of this research two haemoglobin gene alleles (HbA HbB) were determined The estimation of HbA allele gene frequency was 0 785 0 021 The Hair goat population investigated in this study was not in equilibrium in terms of haemoglobin locus.
