Effects on production of milking crossbred suckler cows grazing a semi-arid area of Kenya. III. Post-weaning growth of crossbred calves



Effects on production of milking crossbred suckler cows grazing a semi-arid area of Kenya. III. Post-weaning growth of crossbred calves



East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal 59(2): 123-130



Three experiments were conducted in successive years on crossbred suckler cows on a farm in a semi-arid area close to Nairobi, Kenya. The cows were mated seasonally to calve approximately 1 month before the rainy season (March to May). The effects of milking once daily and supplementation (2 kg/head per day) was examined in a 2 x 2 factorial design by measuring the growth rate of the calves after weaning.
