Heterosis from crosses among British breeds of beef cattle: carcass characteristics



Heterosis from crosses among British breeds of beef cattle: carcass characteristics



J. Anim. Sci 26: 1217-1225



Carcass measurements were analysed for the 5 calf crops born in 1957-61 in the Virginia crossbreeding experiment involving Aberdeen-Angus, Hereford and Shorthorn cattle. The data relating to the 225 steers and 244 heifers were analysed separately. In carcass weight there was good evidence of heterosis in both sexes, the amount being similar in 2- and 3-breed crosses; the backcross heifers showed more heterosis than the backcross steers.
