Effect of winter weight loss in Hereford cows on subsequent calf performance to weaning

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The effect of winter weight loss in Hereford cows on calf birth weight and performance to weaning was examined over a period of 4 yr. The average winter weight loss of cows (60 + 36.2 kg mean += SD) over the period of this study had a significant effect (P < 0.001) on calf birth weight, but no significant (P > 0.05) effect on the pre-weaning daily gain, or weaning weight of their calves.
