Data collected on weight, feed consumption, and daily gain
of 66 steers and 121 bulls were studied by analyses of variance,
covariance, correlation, and partial regression. The bulls were
of Hereford, Angus, and Shorthorn breeds, and the steers were
the offspring of fast and slow gaining bulls that were progeny
tested. The feeding tests for the bulls were from 112 to 170
days, and for the steers, approximately 200 days. The bulls and
steers were on full feed for the test period, and all animals
were fed individually. The first four groups were hand fed and
the remaining groups were self fed.
