Calving patterns and herd production in seasonal dairy herds



Calving patterns and herd production in seasonal dairy herds



Proceedings of the New Zealand Society of Animal Production 39: 168-174



Calving patterns, mean calving dates and production of milk fat were compared in 3 groups of identical twins of differing productivity. Within-set differences in calving date were used to assess differences in production which may arise because of variations in the calving patterns.
