Estimation of the growth curve in Retinta cattle. Practical aspects for the assessment of body weight

The growth curve from birth to weaning was estimated using data on 35 Retinta calves sired by selected bulls and 1142 calves in 10 commercial herds.

Relationship between body fat content and live weight. Body composition based on total body water analysis using phenazone were estimated in 251 beef heifers, aged 3 to 17 months, 27 beef bulls aged 15 months and 200 Holstein dairy cows of different age and stage of lactation. Correlation coefficients...

The effect of genotype on the carcass conformation and fatness and on the adipose tissue development in Retinta x Retinta (n=7), Retinta x Limusin (n=8) and Retinta x Pirenaica (n=6) steers was studied. Animals were fattened until they reached 480...
