Effect of early weaning at different weaning weights on growth and feed efficiency characteristics of the Brown Swiss and Holstein Friesian calves



Effect of early weaning at different weaning weights on growth and feed efficiency characteristics of the Brown Swiss and Holstein Friesian calves



Indian Journal of Animal Sciences 73(4): 425-427



Brown-Swiss and Holstein-Friesian calves weaned at 45 days age were separated into 2 groups (32-45 and 46-61 kg) based on their weights on 45 days age (India). The effect of the weight groups at 4 months old calves were significant, but, the average weights gain in the periods between birth and 6 months and feed efficiency were insignificant.
