This research was conducted at the Research Barn in Pengawu Village, South Palu Subdistrict, Palu City, Central Sulawesi Province, for 10 weeks, starting from May 19, 2014, to August 11, 2014. The aim of this study was to determine the carcass component weight of female Kacang goats fed at different times. Fifteen female Kacang goats, aged approximately 10 to 12 months and weighing between 10.20 to 16.00 kg, were used for the study. These goats were sourced from local farmers in Palu City and its surrounding areas. Each goat was placed in an individual pen with dimensions of 75 x 75 x 75 cm, and there was a total of 15 individual pens, each equipped with a feeding and drinking trough. The study used a Randomized Block Design (RBD) with five treatments and three blocks as replications. The five different feeding times were as follows: WM1 = Feeding at 08:00 WITA, WM2 = Feeding at 09:30 WITA, WM3 = Feeding at 11:00 WITA, WM4 = Feeding at 12:30 WITA, and WM5 = Feeding at 14:00 WITA. The results of the analysis of variance (ANOVA) showed that feeding at different times had a highly significant effect (P<0.01) on the carcass weight of female Kacang goats in the neck, ribs, and legs. It also had a significant effect (P<0.05) on the carcass component weight in the shoulder, loin, flank, and breast, but it did not have a significant effect (P>0.05) on the carcass component weight in the arm
