Preweaning performance of Angus, Brahman and reciprocal cross calves on common Bermudagrass and Kentucky fescue



Preweaning performance of Angus, Brahman and reciprocal cross calves on common Bermudagrass and Kentucky fescue



Special Report Agricultural Experiment Station, Division of Agriculture, University of Arkansas ( 147): 29-34



80 American Angus (AA) and 80 Brahman heifers, managed so as to calve at 3 yr of age, were mated with Angus or Brahman bulls. For purebred Angus, Angus X Brahman, Brahman X Angus and Brahman calves born in 1988, birth weight averaged 71+or-1.3, 68+or-2.1, 87+or-2.2 and 66+or-1.5 kg resp. vs. 71+or-2.1, 61+or-2.6, 95+or-8.0 and 68+or-3.5 for calves born in 1989, the incidence of difficult calving being 27, 9, 39 and 8 vs. 10, 3, 38 and 12%.
