Birth weight (BW), 205-d weaning weight (WW) and total preweaning gain (GAIN) data were evaluated for evidence of cytoplasmic genetic effects in calves from three synthetic lines of beef cattle differing in mature size. Bulls of Jersey, Angus and Sinunental breed combinations were used to generate small (S), medium (M) and large (L) size lines represented in each of two research herds (Rhodes and McNay). Analyses involved records collected on 2543 calves at Rhodes and 1281 calves at McNay from… CONTINUE READING
