A.S. Series 75-46
The cow-calf efficiency project described elsewhere in this bulletin (A.S. Series 75-42) required the production of straightbred and crossbred heifers sired by two bulls, one each from the Angus and Charolais breeds. The purpose of this study was to summarize growth and carcass data from these first crosses. Because the breeds are represented by only one sire, breed comparisons should not be made from these data.
