    Continental breeds are also considered ideal for dual purposes as they produce fair standards of milk as well as beef. Weight gains for continental cattle are also high. British breeds include all cattle types that have been developed in the geographical region of the British Isles and according to most definitions this does include Ireland. SHEEP BREEDS IN NEW ZEALAND Dorset Down Crosses well with all breeds Good grading and grows more wool than other down breeds Wool type—fine/medium High growth rate, well muscled, low fat Increasingly fertile breed Wool type—medium Resourse Book .

    This breed was known as the "Great Improver" when crossed to native longhorn cattle for beef production. Hereford (color) Big Red Cattle with white faces, crest, dewlap, underline, flanks, switch and lower parts of the legs. Greater immune response when compared to other beef breeds Calving Ease / Calf Vigor Senepol are similar to Angus in calving and light birth weight with good calf vigor Maternal Efficiency Fleshing and foraging ability of the Senepol cow. Longevity Cows can stay in production upwards of 15 years Naturally polled Hybrid VigorFile Size: 1MB.

    Ideally Waygu-dairy crosses are marketed as such because they may be discounted if co-mingled with other breed crosses. Dairy genetics for milk production and body conformation have changed during the past 30 years. Similar genetic changes have occurred in North American beef breeds. Many beef breeds have brought in outside genetics to.   In South Africa where it was introduced in , the Simmental is used both for dairy-meat or dual purpose production, and for pure beef breeding often in crosses with hardier tropical breeds. The Simmental is also widely used in Australia and New Zealand, with Zebu crossings in tropical areas of Australia.

BREEDS OF BEEF AND MULTI-PURPOSE CATTLE ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS. The inspiration for writing this book goes back to my undergraduate student days at Iowa State University when I enrolled in the course, “Breeds of Livestock,” taught by the late Dr. Roy Kottman, who was then the Associate Dean of Agriculture for Undergraduate Size: 2MB.

double muscled, the main production traits of cross-bred calves are generally mid way between those of the two parent breeds. Therefore, if a beef breed (e.g. Charolais) has superior beef traits to a dairy breed (e.g.

Holstein-Friesian), then crossing the two will result in progeny with superior beef traits to the dairy Size: 79KB. Beef production from dairy breeds nationally represents 15 percent percent of all U.S. beef produced.

In Michigan, the ratio is almost opposite with nearly 80 percent of all beef production coming from dairy breeds.

For this reason alone, dairy beef production is of significant importance to our bovine industries in Michigan. Breeds and breed crosses for beef production book breed cross.

Three breed cross requires the input of three separate breeds. Along similar principles as with backcross, all first cross male progeny are sold. First cross females are joined with bulls of a third unrelated breed, instead of with one of the parent breeds as in the backcross.

All progeny of F1 dams are sold for slaughter. For example, you could combine the heat tolerance of a tropical breed, like Zebu Cattle with the smaller frame size, lighter (and younger) finishing weight, and cold adaptability of one of the British beef cattle breeds.

Many cattle breeders used cross-breeding to combine desirable genetics from a range of breeds to create new brees. That is the result of heterosis or hybrid vigor. That just means that there is almost always a marked increase in any biological quality when animals or plants are cross bred.

As for which cross is better depends on what traits are most important to you. If you want heat and insect tolerance a cross involving Brahman breeds is usually a good choice. result of between-breed differences in milk production. It is known that the Hereford is a low milk producing breed (Reyneke & Bonsma, Jenkins & Ferrell, ).

All dual-purpose breeds, except the South Devon, produced calves heavier than their respective predicted weaning weights. Simmentaler and Charolais produced the fastest growing calves.

Breeds File Size: KB. Some owners are breeding their Dexters for milk production; some are breeding for beef production, while others stay with the dual-purpose animal. Dexter bulls make excellent crosses on traditional large beef breeds since the smaller size reduces the stress on first calving heifers.

The Beefmaster cattle breed is one of the first American composite cattle breeds and was specifically bred as a dual-purpose breed. It is a composite breed that is made up from three different cattle namely 50% Brahman, 25% Hereford and 25% Shorthorn cattle.

Beef Cattle Breeds are bred for meat production although their are some beef cattle breeds that are dual purpose, so equally suited as dairy cattle. All across the UK beef cattle breeders, breed societies and the Rare Breeds Society Trust (RBST) with its Gene Bank, all work hard to preserve our robust British native cattle breeds genes to.

Belted Galloway beef is exceptionally tender, full of flavour and juicy and were the winners of the Sydney Royal Show "Beef Taste Test". Data collected in the U.S. has shown that the beef dresses out at 60 - 62% of live weight making it a very profitable breed.

British cattle breeds include Angus (Red and Black), Hereford (polled and horned), Galloway, Devon, Dexter, Jersey, Shorthorn, Scottish Highlander, and Holstein. Some of these are considered dairy breeds (Jersey, Holstein, some Shorthorn) but can be used in beef programs for certain characteristics such as ease of fattening, smaller frames, calving ease (smaller.

The breed was strengthened with further imports from Scotland and the cattle have been registered by the Canadian Angus Association since Sinceanimals have been exported back to Scotland and around the world.

Angus is Canada’s leading beef breed because Angus and Angus-cross cattle make sound economic sense, in the breeding. The Cattle Breeds ebook is a comprehensive guide to the different varieties of cattle. This 71 page ebook includes descriptions of the ideal uses for each breed and the origin.

Cow breeds can be broken up into four purpose types: Beef (meat), Dairy, Draft, and Multi-Purpose (Beef-Draft, Dairy-Draft, Beef-Dairy and Beef-Dairy-Draft). Today, the Galloway’s global population is less t animals, but farmers interested in grassfed cattle are jumping on the Galloway bandwagon.

Galloway cattle are renowned for their high-quality, tasty beef. The breed has a long body conformation, which increases the production of high-priced cuts of meat. Two breed Terminal Cross Figure 2. Three breed Terminal Cross replacement heifers are bred to bulls of the breed that is the opposite of their sire (Figure 3).

Two breeds of bulls are required after the first two years of mating. The two breeds chosen should be comparable in birth weight, mature size, and milk production. This minimizesFile Size: KB. Pure-bred vs Crossbred vs Mixed Breed Cattle: Which is the best fit for your farm?.

1 2. The alternative to the purebred or crossbred cattle herd is to manage a mixed cattle breeding program. In this scenario you simply add whatever genetics to your herd as you see fit and pick the best offspring to use as replacement heifers.A year-round milk supply is one of the ultimate signs of self-sufficiency.

These are the cows to consider. Words: Nadene Hall Milk from a house cow, goats or sheep gives you a valuable resource you can use to drink, for cheese, and to make soap. 6 TIPS FROM HOUSE COW OWNERS You will need good quality, food-grade, preferably stainless steel buckets and fridge .In Africa there are two main races of Cattle: Bos indicus (cattle with humps) including the Boran, Sahiwal and Zebu cows (indigenous) and the Bos taurus (exotic or imported breeds).The two races can cross breed, and the crosses can be very productive both in terms of growth rates for beef, improved milk production as well as disease resistance.
