Effect of weaning at three different ages on growth in beef calves



Effect of weaning at three different ages on growth in beef calves



Memoria, Asociacion Latinoamericana de Produccion Animal 13: 154-155



For 240 calves of 5 breeds, weaned at 6, 7 or 8 mth of age, postweaning daily gain to 18 mth averaged 0.29, 0.29 and 0.32 kg resp. (P<0.01). Breed had a significant effect on growth rate in the 1st mth after weaning, but not on overall gain to 18 mth; criollos had the highest av. daily gain (0.33 kg) and Brahman and Charolais the lowest (0.28 kg). Daily gain of calves in the humid Atlantic district averaged 0.28 kg v 0.32 for those in the dry Pacific area (P<0.01).
