There has been concern in recent years about effects of cow size on efficiency of production in that larger breeds are being used in crossbreeding systems and because many of the breeds are selected for larger mature weights through selection for large frame size. To evaluate this, knowledge is needed about feed energy requirements per unit product sold in different breeds and crosses. The purpose of this research was to evaluate TDN requirements of cows and calves per unit slaughter weight and retail product yield in calves from Angus, Charolais and reciprocal cross cows.
