Some environmental effects on birth weight of Holstein-Friesian and Brown Swiss calves in the tropics


Some environmental effects on birth weight of Holstein-Friesian and Brown Swiss calves in the tropics



Memoria, Asociacion Latinoamericana de Produccion Animal 16: 118



Data on an unspecified number of Holstein-Friesian (HF) and Brown Swiss (BS) cows were analysed. Calf birth weight was significantly affected by breed (37.2 kg for BS vs. 35.6 for HF calves) and sex (38.3 kg for males vs. 34.5 for females). Milk yield averaged 3201 kg for HF cows vs. 2813 for BS cows (P less than 0.01); in both breeds it was 4.5% higher for cows giving birth to a male calf than for those producing a female calf.
