Breed effects were evaluated for the 9 parental breeds (Red Poll, Hereford, American Angus, Limousin, Brown Mountain, Pinzgauer, Gelbvieh, Simmental and ...

Abstract

In a long-term experiment (1978-87), fattening performance and carcass traits were studied in crossbreds of beef-breed bulls with Simmental cows and in purebred Simmentals. The beef breed sires were German Angus (GA), Charolais and Limousin. Fattening was carried out on a commercial diet to a final ...

Abstract

Calving and weaning rates, birth weight, ease of calving, and 24-h calf survival were evaluated in a 4-breed diallel of Simmental, Limousin, Polled Hereford (PH) and Brahman cattle in 5 calf crops. Limousin dams tended to have the highest calving and weaning rates because they produced heavier...

Abstract

Groups of 3-breed crossbred cows were mated to Charolais and Limousin bulls to produce 574 three-breed crossbred calves over a 2-year period. Average birth weights were 81.2 lb and 76.2 lb for calves produced by Charolais and Limousin sires resp. Calving assistance was required for 12.4% of...
