Abstract: The primary objective of this study was to compare preweaning performance of calves produced under Hawaiian range conditions by five different mating systems: straightbreeding, backcrossing, two-breed crossing, three-breed crossing, and four-breed crossing. Secondary objectives were to estimate the effects of breed of sire, breed of dam, age of dam, year of birth, and heterosis on preweaning performance of calves.
