Beef cattle performance in the Angus Breeding Programme



Beef cattle performance in the Angus Breeding Programme



Proceedings of the Ruakura Farmers' Conference 30: 4



The Angus Breeding Programme commenced in New Zealand in 1969-70 with the establishment of a nucleus herd of 450 Aberdeen-Angus cows that had weaned large calves. The nucleus consisted in 1978 of about 850 cows managed on 3 adjacent farms 23 km west of Taupo. Performance data for 1976-78 are tabulated. In a sire analysis of progeny weights for calves born in 1976, weaning weight (182 days) ranged from 182 to 210 kg, and yearling weight (368 days) from 223 to 252 kg.
