Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, April LETHBRIDGE Milk production in beef cattle By DR. DAVE BOWDEN Animal Nutritionist In the beef cow, milk production and the energy content of milk have an important influence on the size of the calf at weaning, regardless of the size of the cow. The more milk the cow produces and the richer it is, the faster the calf will gain weight and the less solid feed it will require. Vegetable doubt VANCOUVER (CP) The secretary of the British Columbia coast vegetable marketing board said this week he disagrees with a prediction that the retail price of some vegetables will increase 50 to 100 per cent this fall. Mr. Gilmore said increased prices paid to B.C. growers for this summer's crops are in line with increases in previous years At the Lethbndge Research Station, Jersey- Angus crossbred heifers weaned calves that averaged 498 pounds when 200 days old. This was 33 pounds heavier than calves of Hereford-Angus cross heifers and only six to eight pounds lighter than those from Simmental Angus cross and Charolais Angus cross heifers. All calves were sired by the same Red Poll bull. To relate the performance of the calf to the milk production and milk quality of the cow, information was collected on the first lactations of Simmental Angus cross, Charolai Angus cross, Hereford Angus cross, and Jersey Angus cross heifers. Milk production was measured six, 14, and 22 weeks after calving and, at each of these milkings, a sample of milk was analyzed for fat, protein, and energy content. Animals were fed individually at a level adequate for full expression of milk producing ability. Average daily milk production for the three Good Equipment Makes Dollars 'N Sense!

Jersey Angus heifers had most fat in their milk, 4.3 per cent, while the Charolais Angus cross had least, 3.9 per cent. With the combination of high milk production and high fat content, the calves of the Jersey Angus cross heifers received the greatest amount of energy from milk. Those of Charolais Angus cross heifers received the least energy in the milk. The calves of Simmental Angus cross and Charolais Angus cross heifers ate more solid feed cross heifers, which and thus attained gams received more energy from from birth to weaning similar to those of calves Calves of the Hereford from the Jersey Angus Angus cross heifers gained more slowly than those of the other heifers, although they ate as much solid feed as the Charolais Angus cross.
