Abstract

Numerous studies with New Zealand beef cattle have been carried out to determine responses of live weights or reproductive/survival traits to changes in the level of nutrition, at various stages during the annual production cycle. Various studies have also been carried out to describe how much of the variation for these traits of the cow or calf is genetic. This brief summary explores the possibility that some of these cattle data could be re-evaluated because of their possible relevance and analogies to current medical questions of interest.
