AbstractThe performance of Hereford cows was compared under range and drylot conditions. The objectives of this study were to compare (1) milk yield of cows under the two management systems, (2) effect of milk consumption on growth of suckling calves, and (3) trends in milk composition. The experiment was conducted from April 18 to July 24, 1973, and involved 64 lactating cows ranging in age from 3 through 7 years. Cows were stratified by body weight, age group and age of their calves and randomly allotted to the two treatment groups.
