Feed intake, feed efficiency, growth rate and carcass traits in selected beef bulls



Feed intake, feed efficiency, growth rate and carcass traits in selected beef bulls



Roczniki Naukowe Zootechniki (Supl, z. 15): 219-224



The feed intake, feed efficiency, growth rate and carcass traits of five breeds (Charolais, Limousin, Hereford, Red Angus, Simmental) and crossbreds of Piemontese x Friesian beef bulls were compared. Measurements of ad libitum feed intake were conducted in 95 young bulls. Feed intake and growth data were collected for a period of 60 days. The animals were fed a diet of Total Mixed Ration (TMR), which consisted of corn silage (75%), concentrates (20%) and hay (5%).
