Variation of body weight of calves during rearing



Variation of body weight of calves during rearing



Vyzkum v Chovu Skotu 21(1): 5-11



Data were obtained on 41 Ayrshire X Czech Pied heifers purchased from 13 farms at approx. 12 days of age. Body weight averaged 46.7 kg (35.3-66.3) at purchase, 61.8 kg (43.6-89.5) at weaning at 45 days, and 97.7 kg (71.6-138.1) at 87 days. Of calves that exhibited above-average growth before weaning, 65% exhibited a similar growth rate after weaning. Of calves that exhibited below-average growth rate before weaning, 77.8% exhibited similar growth after weaning.
