Genetic and breeding factors affecting feed intake and conversion and beef production traits

Genetic and breeding factors affecting feed intake and conversion and beef production traits

Beretning fra Statens Husdyrbrugsforsog ( 660): 45-63

An account is given on some recent investigations in Denmark, Norway and the Netherlands on the effects of selecting cows of dual-purpose breeds for milk yield on feed conversion, feed consumption and beef production traits.
