In 3 groups 21 native Korean cattle received calf starter with roughage at 20 days of age, or milk replacer and calf starter diet with roughage after weaning at 30 days old, and the last sucked milk only for 150 days. Respective bodyweights were 126.8, 99.1 and 90.0 kg at 150 days and 398.0, 367.7 and 241.0 kg at 18 months old; differences between the first group and the others were significant. Daily gains in weight were 0.69, 0.66 and 0.39 kg and concentrates eaten reached, respectively, 6.56 6.46 and 6.37 kg/kg weight gain. (From summary.).
