Effect of age at weaning and post-weaning stocking rate on the growth of autumn born calves



Effect of age at weaning and post-weaning stocking rate on the growth of autumn born calves



Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture and Animal Husbandry 12(59): 579-583



In 1968-69 and 1969-70, 4 groups of 16 autumn-calving Hereford cows, with similar mean calving dates, mean calf live wt. and equal numbers of heifers and steers, were grazed at 1.5 cows/ha from 6 wk after calving until weaning at 4, 6, 8 or 10 months of age. The milk yield of cows that were to have their calves weaned at 10 months was recorded. During 1968-69 the average daily milk yield was approx. 5.0 kg during late spring, falling to 1.1 kg by the middle of Jan.
