Abstract

Thirty Brangus bulls were used in a 90-d study to assess the effect of artificial shading on the performance and reproductive characteristics of semi-confined cattle. Animals were kept in four one-ha paddocks in two groups of eight for shade treatment (5 m2/animal of 80% solar block shade cloth)...

AbstractFull Text

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of factors influencing growth performances (live weight and average daily weight gain) of 374 calves from terminal crossing between indigenous breeds (Gudali, White Fulani and Banyo) and three exotic breeds (Brahman, Brangus and Holstein). Data...

AbstractFull Text

A total of 54 young bulls were studied in a feedlot to evaluate muscular growth and adipose tissue deposition in Nelore (18), Aberdeen-Angus × Nelore (18) and Brangus (18) genetic groups, with an initial age of 8 months and initial average weight of 240 kg. The animals were randomly distributed and ...
