A study of sex differences in various statistics calculated from data on growing Angus bulls and heifers fed at different levels



A study of sex differences in various statistics calculated from data on growing Angus bulls and heifers fed at different levels



Dissertation Abstracts International, B 36(3): 985-986



Over a 6-yr period, data were collected on 858 Aberdeen-Angus calves, the progeny of 85 sires. The traits recorded at 231 days (weaning) and at 385 days of age were: body weight, type score, condition score, av. daily gain, chest circumference, body length and hip width. Bull calves were full fed during the post-weaning period, while females were restricted.
