The research was conducted in Jembrana Regency, Bali Province, Indonesia for five months with the aim of determining the breeding values and morphometric characteristics including shoulder height, body length, chest circumference, ear length, body weight and scrotum circumference of the Etawa crossbreed (PE) goat population in Jembrana Regency, Bali. Furthermore, the research results were compared with the quantitative requirements for PE goats according to the Indonesian National Standard (SNI) 7352.1:2015, regarding Etawah crossbreed goat breeds and obtained prospective superior male and parent seeds. Data were analyzed descriptively. Next, the breeding value of each individual and the morphometric characteristics of the PE goat were calculated. The results obtained are that the highest breeding value (BV) for male goats aged I1 is livestock with code 5 and for I2 is livestock with code 5. The highest breeding value for female goats aged I1 is livestock with code 3 and for I2 is livestock with code 74. The performance of male and female goats in Jembrana Regency, Bali Province is very good, because it is higher than the minimum quantitative requirements set by SNI 7352.1:2015, regarding Etawa crossbreed goat breeds. Based on this, it is recommended to use male and female PE goats, in Jembrana Regency, Bali Province, as superior male and female seeds, because they comply with the requirements of SNI 7352.1:2015, regarding PE goat breeds.
