Recently there has been increased utilization of exotic cattle to increase production in beef herds. Larger calves at weaning and slaughter have resulted due to increased mothering ability and frame size. Hereford-Angus cows have been used extensively in South Dakota and have performed well under local conditions.
This study was designed to compare reproductive performance and calf production of S x A and H x A crossbred cows under range conditions. Feedlot performance and carcass beef production have also been evaluated.
