Variation in pre-weaning growth rate of Bhagnari x Droughtmaster calves

Variation in pre-weaning growth rate of Bhagnari x Droughtmaster calves

Pakistan Veterinary Journal 19(1): 4-6

Data collected for birth weight and weaning weight on 1118 calves sired by 26 Droughtmaster bulls at the Beef Production Research Centre, Sibi, Baluchistan, Pakistan, from 1971 to 1994, were used to determine pre-weaning growth rate. Calves averaged 24+or-4 kg at birth and 111+or-23 kg at weaning. Growth rate up to weaning was 414+or-104 g/day. The growth rate of the calves was affected (P<0.01) by year of birth and sex of the calf.
