Body composition and carcass characteristics of calves fed on different levels of whole milk relative to body weight
TLDR
Body weight tended to increase with feeding level, but the proportions of body parts, relative to body weight, were generally unaffected and group differences were small after adjustment for variation in carcass weight. Expand
A comparison of breeds and their crosses for beef production. II. Growth and puberty of heifers
TLDR
The results indicate that, relative to the use of straightbred Hereford heifers, early breeding in the progeny would be facilitated by crossing Hereford with Friesian, unaffected by crossing with Charolais, but made more difficult by crossed with Brahman, in a temperate environment. Expand
Effect of plane of nutrition in early life on subsequent live-weight gain, carcass and muscle charaterists and eating quality of meat in cattle
TLDR
Carcass characteristics of steers underfed in early life were remarkably similar to those of continually grown steers when slaughtered at the same live weight, despite their greater age. Expand
The influence of feeding level and type of feed on the carcasses of steers
TLDR
The effects of feeding level and grain feeding increased carcass fatness by 16 and 22% respectively; it is suggested that these effects are of commercial importance, particularly if the combined effects are additive. Expand

The use of crossbred cows to increase beef production per hectare.
TLDR
First year results from an experiment in which these three genotypes were grazed separately at three stocking rates support a higher productivity and profitability per cow and per hectare from the use of Angus x Hereford and Friesian X Hereford cows. Expand
A comparison of breeds and their crosses for beef production. I. Birth and weaning traits
Hereford and Friesian cows aged 12-15 months in 1970, were inseminated with semen from Hereford, Friesian, Charolais and Brahman bulls each year from 1970 to 1973 to produce a total of 736 calves.Expand
Animal Production in Australia OBSERVATIONS ON THE EFFECT OF LIVE WEIGHT , LIVEWEIGHT CHANGE AND EXOGENOUS HORMONES ON THE FERTILITY OF YOUNG HEIFERS
In many situations a yearling mating strategy for beef heifers may be only moderately successful because genetic and nutritional factors prevent a proportion of them from reaching puberty before theExpand
Breed and crossing effects on post-weaning growth rate of steers.
TLDR
From 1970 to 1973 Hereford (H) and Friesian (F) cows were inseminated to H, F, Charolais (C) and Brahman (B) bulls and there were no significant interactions between the effects of the dam and sire breeds. Expand
