Genetic factors affecting variation in calf birth weight



Genetic factors affecting variation in calf birth weight



Bayerisches Landwirtschaftliches Jahrbuch 69(1): 139-144



Clinical examination of 17 German Brown, 16 German Simmental and 5 crossbred calves with a birth weight of <20 kg (indicating proportionate dwarfism) revealed no evidence of reduced gestation period, skeletal defects or disease in the dam or calf. Pedigree analysis for the German Brown calves indicated that proportionate dwarfism can be explained by a single major gene.
