Factors affecting fertility according to the postpartum period in crossbred dual-purpose suckling cows in the tropics



Factors affecting fertility according to the postpartum period in crossbred dual-purpose suckling cows in the tropics



Tropical Animal Health and Production 37(7): 559-572



To determine the relationship between first service conception rate (FSC) and the postpartum period (PP), 6160 calvings from 2250 crossbred dual-purpose cows were analysed. The effects of breed predominance (BT: Bos taurus and BI: Bos indicus), season of service (dry, intermediate and humid), parity (1 or 2 and more), agroecological region (Sub-humid and Dry Tropical Forest) and milk production were studied.
