Effect of twin birth on growth of cattle



Effect of twin birth on growth of cattle



Animal Production 22(2): 167-173



About 350 single- and 250 twin-born female Ayrshire cattle on the same feeding regime were compared in respect of 12 linear body measurements at 3-monthly intervals up to 36 mth of age, and some two-thirds of the females were compared up to 48 mth. The twins were purchased from a wide variety of farms, and it is unlikely that their dams were significantly better fed, in pregnancy, than the dams of single calves.
