Reproductive performance of Tswana and Simmental x Tswana crosses in smallholder farms in Botswana


Reproductive performance of Tswana and Simmental x Tswana crosses in smallholder farms in Botswana



Livestock Research for Rural Development 13(5): 1-8



Data from the small-scale dairy projects were analysed to compare the reproductive performance of Simmental x Tswana crosses and purebred Tswana milking cows from smallholder farms. The effects of season (dry and wet), breed group (Tswana and Simmental crosses) and their interaction on calving interval and days open were determined. Correlation of monthly calving and monthly rainfall was computed.
