Factors affecting productive and reproductive performance of Friesian x Borana crossbred cows under smallholder management conditions in Ethiopia



Factors affecting productive and reproductive performance of Friesian x Borana crossbred cows under smallholder management conditions in Ethiopia



African Journal of Livestock Extension 3: 45-49



The factors contributing to milk yield, changes in body weight (BW) and body condition score (BC), and reproductive performance of 50 Friesian x Borana (F1) crossbred cows under smallholder farmers' management conditions were investigated. The F1 crossbred cows were distributed by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in the study area with the objective of introducing multipurpose (dairy and draft) cow technology.
