Controlled breeding of dairy heifers: observations over a five year period

, : Controlled breeding of dairy heifers: observations over a five year period. Bovine Practitioner (21): 146-149

Over a 5-yr period, 191 Holstein-Friesian heifers were inseminated following oestrus synchronization with 2 injections of a PGF2 alpha analogue, 11 days apart. The heifers were not selected prior to synchronization, and no heat detection methods were used. Overall CRs for the 5-yr period were 59.8% for timed inseminations, ranging from 50% in years 3 and 5 to 76.2% in year 4.

Three series of 64 heifers comprising two genotypes (Friesian and Charolais .times. Friesian) and two feeding levels between 5 and 14 months of age (high:H and moderate:M) were compared. Two-thirds of the heifers were mated at 10 months of age, th...

Evidence was obtained that heifers born in spring show the 1st oestrus 2 mth earlier than those born in autumn. A very early oestrus in 1 spring-born heifer resulted in calving at 14 mth of age. For 20 heifers calving at 18 mth of age, lactation m...

Preliminary results suggest that age at 1st calving in Friesian heifers mated to a Friesian bull should not be <18 mth, and that their live weight before calving should be more than or equal to 460 kg. If these conditions are met, calving diffi...
