Alexander, G.I. and Chester, R.D. (1956) Growth studies of beef cattle in Queensland. Queensland Journal of Agricultural Science, 13 (2). pp. 69-95.



A progress report on growth rate studies of various breeds and crosses of beef cattle at several centres is presented. The data indicate that the seasonal variation common to all centres may be controlled to some extent by the use of winter-growing pastures and forage crops and by using cattle of tropical origin in breeding programmes. This review of the present knowledge of growth rates in Queensland beef cattle has been undertaken to supplement the comprehensive unpublished information compiled by Dr. M. C. Franklin on growth rates of cattle in other States.
