Estimation of body weight in Nelore beef cattle at 24 months of age, using growth curves


, : Estimation of body weight in Nelore beef cattle at 24 months of age, using growth curves. Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Zootecnia 23(1): 85-91

Four non-linear methods (using von Bertalanffy's quantitative theory, Wood's algebraic model, the linear hyperbolic model proposed by Bianchini and a quadratic logarithmic model) were used to estimate body weight at 24 months for Nelore cattle, weighed at monthly intervals from birth to 24 months.

Data on 7438 Nelore calves, sired by 100 bulls and born in 1975-84 in 29 herds in Brazil, were analysed. Genetic trend was estimated based on repeated use of the same sires in successive years.
