A study was conducted to evaluate the effect of sire growth potential, steer age, and cow size on intake, growth, and production efficiency in grazing cattle. Data were collected on 24 cow-calf pairs during each of four summers (1989 to 1992) and on 12, 7-mo-old and 12 yearling steers during three summers (1990 to 1992). Suckling calves and older steers were sired by either high-(Charolais with high EPD for yearling weight) or moderate-growth-potential (Line 1 Hereford with average yearling… CONTINUE READING
