Comparison of effect of two levels of concentrate mixture on weight gains of crossbred heifers (Holstein X zebu) during the dry season and on gains on pasture in the rainy season in the dry scrub (cerrado) region



Comparison of effect of two levels of concentrate mixture on weight gains of crossbred heifers (Holstein X zebu) during the dry season and on gains on pasture in the rainy season in the dry scrub (cerrado) region



Arquivos da Escola de Veterinaria, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais 24(1): 21-25



Thirty-four Holstein X zebu heifers, average initial weight 167 kg and age 9 to 10 months, were kept in confinement for 70 days in Brazil and were given 1 kg cottonseed meal and 12 kg mixed silage of maize and elephant grass (Pennisetum purpureum) with 1 or 2 kg maize ear meal. Then for 205 days, during the rainy season, they were pastured on molasses grass (Melinis minutiflora) in a dry scrub region, with mineral supplement.
