Zootechnical study of cattle production: the case of the state of Colima (Mexico)
In order to characterize the livestock farming systems in the state of Colima, Mexico, and to identify ways in which improvements could be made, this paper works from regional level to animal level. A farmer typology is created and on this basis 15 herds belonging to dual purpose (milk and beef) cattle systems are monitored. Zootechnical performance is examined, (calving interval, milk production, growth), and the parameters are found to follow strong seasonal variations.
