The body weight of heifers in relation to milk production in the first lactation

Zivoc. Vyroba. 12: 5, 345-356

At a progeny testing station, the av. increase in body weight for 62 Bohemian Red Spotted heifers between 30 and 210 days after calving was 49.3 kg., and the correlation between this weight increase and milk yield was -0.340; the correlation was 0.348 for the first 20 days after calving.
