Genetic correlations between performance of individually fed and feedlot bulls



Genetic correlations between performance of individually fed and feedlot bulls



South African Journal of Animal Science 24(2): 74-75



The performance of Bonsmara bulls tested in Phase C of the South African Performance Testing Scheme (a test under intensive management, in which individual feed intakes are measured) was compared with the performance of their half-sib bulls tested in Phase D (in conditions similar to those of a commercial feedlot). Birth weight and yearling weight did not differ between bulls tested in the 2 phases.
