Effect of single or twin calving on output in beef suckler cows

, : Effect of single or twin calving on output in beef suckler cows. Animal production Report from Dunsinea, Moorepark and Western Research Centres Research report 1982: 96-97

Hereford X Friesian heifers were subjected to AI (20 heifers) or induced to produce twin calves by AI and a single contralateral embryo transfer (15 heifers). The percentage of cows that produced twin calves was 0 and 60% in the 2 groups resp.
