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