Tolerance of a tropical climate by young Friesian and Creole bulls given several different diets. Determination of a climatic index



Tolerance of a tropical climate by young Friesian and Creole bulls given several different diets. Determination of a climatic index



Annales de Zootechnie 32(3): 383-396



The thermotolerance of young French Friesian and Creole bulls kept in open-sided shelters was studied according to microclimate and type of feed. For Friesian bulls the skin temperature, rectal temperature and respiration rate were generally higher (particularly on the diets with highest energy contents) and their feed intake and liveweight gain were also higher than in Creole bulls.
