Data on reproductive performance of the White Fulani (Bunaji) cattle in Southern Nigeria were analysed. Age at first calving, first and overall calving intervals averaged 4·03±0·43 years, 436·19±9·32 and 420·98±4·11 days respectively. The year of birth significantly affected age at first calving and calving interval (P<0·01) but the season of birth had significant effect only on calving interval (P<0·05). In addition the age of the dam also affected the calving interval (P<0·05) but the sex of… CONTINUE READING
