Abstract:
Live-weight gains were recorded for 459 intact male (bull) calves kept in 17 groups on three farms. The correlation coefficient between weight gained during the first 110 to 130 days of life and that gained during the subsequent period until slaughter was r = 0·53 (n = 459; P < 0·001). It is suggested that with bulls, nutritional and other factors which increase live-weight gain during the rearing period to about 4 mo of age may have a positive effect on subsequent performance to slaughter. © 1977, British Society of Animal Science.
