The influence of an extra flush of pasture before and during mating on the performance of beef cows on hill country



The influence of an extra flush of pasture before and during mating on the performance of beef cows on hill country



Proceedings of the New Zealand Society of Animal Production 42: 79-81



The effects of an extra flush of pasture around mating vs. recommended pasture allowance levels for cows from calving to mating were compared in 1979 and 1980 in animals which had been fed to maintain live weight prior to calving. Cow live weight after calving was positively associated with increasing feed levels, although the differences were small to non-significant by weaning.
