Abstract: The study evaluated the influence of breed of sire, breed of dam, year age of dam, heterosis, and crossbreeding effects on preweaning performance of calves sired by Angus, Hereford, and Charolais bulls and out of Angus and Hereford cows. The study found that Angus and Hereford cross to advantage, and that Charolais provided superior results.
