Abstract

Consequences of low (mean 28.0 kg, n=77) and high (mean 38.4 kg, n=77) birthweight followed by slow (mean 548 g/day, n=75) or rapid (mean 859 g/day, n=79) growth to weaning for feedlot growth, intake and efficiency from 26 to 30 months of age were determined in Wagyu × Hereford (n=81) and...

Abstract

Cattle sired by Piedmontese or Wagyu bulls were bred and grown within pasture-based nutritional systems followed by feedlot finishing. Effects of low (mean 28.6 kg, n=120) and high (38.8 kg, n=120) birthweight followed by slow (mean 554 g/day, n=119) or rapid (875 g/day, n=121) growth to weaning on ...

Abstract

Severe, chronic growth retardation of cattle early in life reduces growth potential, resulting in smaller animals at any given age. Capacity for long-term compensatory growth diminishes as the age of onset of nutritional restriction resulting in prolonged growth retardation declines. Hence, more...

Abstract

The performance of purebred and crossbred Nelore cattle was compared. In trial 1, birth weight, weaning weight and daily gain from birth to weaning averaged 28.6, 181 and 0.565 kg respectively for 1641 purebred Nelore calves vs. 29.7, 191 and 0.599 kg for 1161 Canchim × Nelore crossbreds, and in...

Abstract

179 crossbreds with Chiana, Limousin, Marchigiana [Marche], Piemontese [Piedmont] and Charolais sires and Friesian dams were mated at 12-15 months of age, mainly with Piemontese bulls. For the 5 types resp., the percentage of stillbirths was 3.2, 10.3, 10.0, 28.9 and 16.6, and calf mortality up to...
