Extract

To develop appropriate rearing regimes for high genetic merit dairy heifers, information is required on the effect of growth rates and diet type within the various stages of die animal’s life on performance. The aims of this study were to investigate (1) the effects of plane of nutrition and diet type during the pre-pubertal period on lactogenic hormone levels and (2) the effects of plane of nutrition during die post-pubertal period on lactogenic hormone levels, growth and milk production.
