A comparison of breeds and their crosses for beef production. II. Growth and puberty of heifers



A comparison of breeds and their crosses for beef production. II. Growth and puberty of heifers



Australian Journal of Agricultural Research 32(5): 839-844



Data on 323 heifers born to the same parental stock as described in Pt. I were analysed. After weaning at 8 months of age, the heifer progeny were grazed on improved pastures, and oestrus was detected by sterilised bulls fitted with chin-ball harnesses.
