Analysis of cattle breeding in North East Argentina and possibilities of using criollo cattle for its improvement

Veterinaria Argentina 6(52): 152-154

A comparison was made of zebu, Hereford and criollo cows in the north-east of Argentina, where the climate is subtropical. Criollos and Herefords had the best reproductive performance and were the youngest at 1st mating. The incidence of dystocia and preweaning mortality were lowest in criollos and highest in Herefords. Zebus and criollo cows had the best mothering ability, adaptation and the longest useful life.
