Genetic and non-genetic factors affecting body weight in Brown Swiss X Sahiwal crosses



Genetic and non-genetic factors affecting body weight in Brown Swiss X Sahiwal crosses



Indian Journal of Dairy Science 33(3): 341-346



Data are tabulated for the body weight at birth, at 3, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 24 mth of age, and at 1st calving for Sahiwal and Brown Swiss (BS) X Sahiwal heifers with 1/4, 3/8, 5/8, 3/4 or 1/2 BS blood. All weights increased with an increasing percentage of BS blood, although the increases were more marked for birth weight than for the other weights. Parity of dam had a significant effect on birth weight and 18-mth weight of their daughters.
