0000009343 00000 n Weaning conformation and condition scores were adjusted also to a standard age of 205 d. Limousin-sired calves had a slightly lower (P < .01) condition score (5.3 vs 5.4) but a slight advantage (P < .05) in conformation score (13.5 vs 13.4). 0000003103 00000 n Research was conducted by the Anim. 65:583. They are also highly adapted to hot arid climates, with not only the skin pigmentation that makes them resistant to sunburn and able to stand out in the hot sun without any problems, but also their ability to restrict blood flow to the areas where they have been bitten by ticks, isolating the ticks and starving them. Please Share! Koch, R. M. and J. W. Algeo. 49:92. In: R. A. Barton and W. C. Smith (Ed.) 56:171. a Calving difficulty: 1 = no difficulty and 2 = little difficulty. J. Anim. Carcass cutability, as calculated by the USDA equation, was similar for the sire breeds, but a sire breed X sex of calf interaction was found (Table 4). 62:35. Newman, J. 0000010030 00000 n Limousin-sired cattle had a .7% advantage (P < .01) in dressing percentage, but had .17 cm more s.c. fat (P < .01).

Mathematical modeling of alternative culling and crossbreeding strategies in beef production. Steers were harvested in a commercial facility, and individual carcass measurements taken after a 36-hour chill. The Limousin breed often has been recommended (Smith, 1976; Frahm and Belcher, 1978; Vissac et al., 1982) and utilized (Adams et al., 1973; Berg et al., 1978; Fredeen et al., 1982a,b; Rahnefeld et al., 1983) as a terminal sire breed due to its adequate growth rate and feed efficiency and superior ability to produce lean carcasses. The three British breeds (Hereford, Angus, Red Angus) were similar for 200-day weaning weight. It has been more than 25 years since Kittle Farms brought one of the first Gelbvieh bulls to the Sand Mountain area of Alabama. Gelbvieh-sired cattle were 13.1 kg heavier (P < .01) when placed on feed, 9.3 kg heavier (P<.10) at slaughter and were in the feedlot 6.5 d less (P < .05) than Limousin-sired cattle. Sci.   J. Anim. 0000036100 00000 n 0000004035 00000 n 0000003799 00000 n J. Anim. 1 Journal Article 5259 ofthe Agric. Gelbvieh-sired calves were 1.0 kg heavier (P < .05) at birth than Limousin-sired calves, but they did not have an increased calving difficulty score. The following tables present preliminary results from Cycle VII of the Germplasm Evaluation Program at the U.S. MARC. Results of simulations (Cartwright et al., 1975; Wilton and Morris, 1976; Notter et al., 1979; Clarke et al., 1984) have indicated that production efficiency was greatest when a terminal system was used. Rahnefeld, G. W., H. T. Fredeen, G. M. Weiss, J. E. Lawson and J. 0000001231 00000 n J. Anim. Limousin sired calves were lighter at weaning than all other breed groups. COMPARISON OF GELBVIEH AND LIMOUSIN SIRES IN A TERMINAL CROSSBREEDING SYSTEM. 0000003333 00000 n Adams, N. J., W. N. Garrett and J. T. Elings. Gelbvieh-sired cattle from Angus-cross cows were in the feedlot 11.4 d less than cattle from Hereford-cross cows, but Limousin-sired cattle from Angus-cross cows spent 3.5 d more in the feedlot than cattle from Hereford-cross cows. There are some strict guidelines which should be followed to maintain the purity of this breed. (1976, 1979) reported comparable carcass characteristics when carcasses from Gelbvieh-cross and Limousin-cross steers were compared with those from Hereford-Angus reciprocal cross steers. It has to be fun and love that keeps us all driven to feed the world after all we go through. She's worked for a mixed-practice veterinarian, as a sales representative in a farm supply store, and as a research assistant doing rangeland, soil, and crop research. Fixed effects included in the model were sire breed, year within sire breed, dam crossbred group, sex of calf and all two-way interactions. (Key Words: Beef Cattle, Cross Breeding, Gelbvieh, Limousin.). It's relatively lean, but good. Balancer cattle offer a simple and powerful way to maintain hybrid vigor and a profitable blend of British and Continental genetics without a complicated crossbreeding system. *P <.05 **P <.01. Copyright © 1996. This means that breeds like Angus and Red Angus can be infused into this breed for higher genetic variation and merit. Gray calves are more likely to come from a black Gelbvieh-Charolais cross, just to provide an example. Anim. Sci. (1978) reported that both Gelbvieh-sired and Limousin-sired calves were heavier at birth than Hereford-Angus reciprocal cross calves, with Gelbvieh cross calves .8 kg heavier than Limousin cross calves (3.3 vs 2.5 kg heavier than Hereford-Angus reciprocal cross calves, respectively). {"smallUrl":"https:\/\/www.wikihow.com\/images\/thumb\/8\/88\/Identify-Gelbvieh-Cattle-Step-1.jpg\/v4-460px-Identify-Gelbvieh-Cattle-Step-1.jpg","bigUrl":"\/images\/thumb\/8\/88\/Identify-Gelbvieh-Cattle-Step-1.jpg\/aid1169434-v4-728px-Identify-Gelbvieh-Cattle-Step-1.jpg","smallWidth":460,"smallHeight":345,"bigWidth":"728","bigHeight":"546","licensing":"
