Abstract

Preweaning growth traits and neonatal weakness (NW) were studied in Red (RB, n=82) and Grey Brahman (GB, n=37) calves. At birth, males calves were heavier than females (31.6±0.9 vs. 28.5±0.8 kg; P<0.002), calves experiencing NW were lighter (29.0±1.1 vs. 31.2±0.6 kg; P<0.06) than normals, and ...

Abstract

Weaning performance of 1393 purebred calves for heritability, genetic, phenotypic, and environmental correlation, as well as factors influencing weaning performance (year of birth, season of birth, sex, and number of calving) were evaluated. Traits included were weaning weight (WW), preweaning...

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

The growth curve from birth to weaning was estimated using data on 35 Retinta calves sired by selected bulls and 1142 calves in 10 commercial herds. The growth curve was significantly affected by herd, parity of dam, season of calving and sex of calf, but not by type of birth (single or twin) or...

Abstract

Data on 258 kids were analysed. Daily gain from birth to 60 days averaged 181.4 and 143.1 g respectively for ♂♂ and ♀♀ suckled ad lib. vs. 93.1 and 75.9 g for those subjected to restricted suckling. The differences between the sexes were significant, but there were only slight differences between...

Abstract

Data on 1170 crossbred criollo calves with 50-75% of Brahman, Charolais or Simmental breeding were analysed. Preweaning mortality ranged from 10.0 to 17.8%, and 29% of deaths occurred from 91 days of age to weaning. Although the differences between the breed types were not significant, calves with...

Abstract

For 974 ♂ and 883 ♀ Tabapuã calves from 46 sires and 937 dams, birth weight averaged 31.35±0.35 kg; it was significantly affected by sire and sex of calf, which accounted for 7.07 and 4.73% resp. of the variation in birth weight. Body weight at 90 days averaged 92.80±0.88 kg, and was significantly...

Abstract

Data on 974 ♂ and 883 ♀ Tabapuã calves from 46 sires and 937 dams were analysed. Daily gains from birth to 90 and 205 days and from 90 to 205 days of age averaged 690±1.0, 670±1.0 and 640±1 g resp., and were significantly affected by sire (accounting for 3.49, 3.78 and 3.20% resp. of the total...
