Abstract

The maintenance of sire, suitable for breeding in healthy condition is essential for success of breeding programme. Malnutrition of bull calves can delay the sexual maturity and lessen the quantity and quality of their semen. The inter-relationship between nutrition, growth rate and age at puberty in the male are very similar to those in the female. Thus, male reared on high as opposed to low plane of nutrition reach puberty at early ages and heavier body weights.
