Selection program on sheep needs some important factors like season, sex, body weight and age of dam. This research was aimed to get the characteristic of pre and post-weaning growth of local sheep in Jonggol Animal Science Teaching and Research Unit (JASTRU) IPB and selection criteria. The result can be used as a basic information on selection program to grade up the genetic properties of these sheep. This research located at JASTRU IPB, Singasari Village, sub district of Jonggol from June 2007 to May 2008 which represent two different seasons, rainy and dry. The number of sheep in the beginning of research was 154 head and in the end of research was only 33 head. The result showed that the value of Temperature Humidity Index were on slight and adequate heat. Statistic t test showed that there was a significant difference (p<0,05) between male and female birth weight in rainy season but in age of 90 and 180 day showed no significant difference. Also, birth weight between rainy and dry season was significantly different (P<0,05) and body weight on age 90 and 180 day was not significantly different. Variance analysis showed that age of dam significantly affected the male birth weight in dry season (p<0,05) and female birth weight in rainy season (p<0,05). The highest lamb body weight was owned by lamb from 2,5 to 3,0 years of dam. Pre-weaning weekly average daily gain (ADG) was higher than that of post-weaning, both on male and female, and rainy and dry season. Body weight on age 90 day can be used as a selection criteria and selection on dam can be done at age 1 to 2 years of age. Selection response of 90 day weight in dry season was higher than that of rainy season.
