Genetic parameters for production and feeding behaviour traits in crossbred steers fed a finishing diet at different agesDownload
Because cattle can be raised postweaning under several feeding regimes, this study examined the consistency of phenotypic and genetic parameters of some production and feeding behaviour traits between two feeding periods that beef cattle received a finisher diet. Crossbred steers (n=851) were...
Prediction of residual feed intake for first lactation dairy cows using orthogonal polynomial random regressionDownload
Residual Feed Intake (RFI) is a measure of energy efficiency. Developing an appropriate model to predict expected energy intake while accounting for multifunctional energy requirements of metabolic body weight (MBW), empty body weight (EBW), milk production energy requirements (MPER), and their...
