Differences in body weight and weight gains in zebu and Holstein-Friesian heifers during the dry and rainy seasons in Minas Gerais


, : Differences in body weight and weight gains in zebu and Holstein-Friesian heifers during the dry and rainy seasons in Minas Gerais. Arquivos da Escola de Veterinaria da Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais 23: 153-157

Analysis of data on 88 Holstein-Friesian, Nellore and Guzerat heifers, sired by 22 bulls, revealed considerable differences between the breeds in weight gains during the dry season when the females were housed, whereas these differences decreased on pasture during the rainy season. The correlation between weight gains in the dry and rainy season (-0.04) was not significant.
