Abstract

The objective of this study was to assess the growth performance of six cattle breed groups from birth to 18 month of age at Songa Research Station in Rwanda. Records of animals born between 1998 and 2008 were evaluated using nested ANOVA for effects of non-genetic factors on growth performance of...

Abstract

Records of birth weight (BWT) and weaning weight (WWT) of 1184 Friesian cattle calves (591 male and 593 female), progeny of 49 sires during the period from 1990 to 2000 were analysed. The objective of this study was to construct selection indices for selecting Friesian calves on the basis of...

Abstract

Records of birth (BWT), weaning (WWT) weights, and average daily gain (ADG) of 1184 male and female Friesian calves, which were progeny of 49 sires born from 1990 to 2000 were used. Data were statistically analysed using the computer programme of Harvey. Heritability estimates were 0.241, 0.279,...

Abstract

Data on 221 calves from 164 Charolais × Friesian (group 1) and (Simmental × Friesian) × Charolais cows (group 2), mated with Simmental or Hereford bulls, were analysed. Average daily gain from birth to the end of the grazing period (at 187.1 days of age) was 2.4% higher for calves from cows in...

Abstract

For 252 Friesian × Hariana, 176 Brown Swiss × Hariana and 150 Jersey × Hariana calves, mortality during the 1st week of life averaged 37.9, 28.6 and 31.6% resp. Differences among breed types were not significant. Mortality during the 1st week of life was higher among calves born during the monsoon...

Abstract

Limousin × Friesian and Hereford × Friesian suckler dams were compared. One Charolais sire was used on the herd, and the 3rd calf crop was born when the dams were 4 yr of age, in Apr.-May 1984. Dam genotype had no significant effect on the incidence of calving difficulties, calf birth weights, calf ...

Abstract

Hereford × Friesian, Charolais × Friesian and Friesian single-suckling dams were compared over 4 calving seasons. The cows were mated to a Limousin bull to calve first at 2 yr of age. One Simmental bull was used in each of the 3 subsequent years. Calving occurred during Feb.-Apr. and weaning in...

Abstract

A follow-up life-table approach was used to study mortality in 1105 calves born alive in a University herd in Zaria, Nigeria for the period January 1975 to June 1980. The proportion of calves in the herd surviving for the first 12 weeks was 91.3 plus or minus 0.8%. The probability of dying was...
