A comparison of growth rate in male Holstein-Friesian and Holstein-Friesian X zebu crossbred calves on pasture or at a fattening unit



A comparison of growth rate in male Holstein-Friesian and Holstein-Friesian X zebu crossbred calves on pasture or at a fattening unit



2nd World Congress on Genetics applied to Livestock Production, 4th-8th October 1982-8 Symposia 2: 441-445



Data on 190 Holstein-Friesian (HF) and HF X zebu calves, fattened from 6 months of age for 300 days indoors or for 500 days on pasture, were analysed. For HF, 3/4 HF-, 5/8-HF and 1/4-HF calves fattened intensively, daily gains averaged 0.94, 0.96, 0.94 and 0.88 g resp. vs. 0.29, 0.37, 0.44 and 0.48 g for the same types on pasture, the differences between the 2 types of fattening and between genotypes being significant.
