Abstract

Data from two test stations were used to compare selected traits between polled and homed bulls. The traits evaluated were birth weight (BIR), on test average daily gain (ADG), adjusted yearling weight (ADJYRL), weight per day of age (WPDA), scrotal circumference (SC), adjusted scrotal circumference (ADJSC) and back fat thickness (BFAT). The results show no disadvantage for polled bulls compared to homed for ADG, ADJYRL, WPDA, SC and ADJSC.
