Dynamics of live weight and weight gains in different lines of black-motley replacement heifers of the Vologda type

In the conditions of the analyzed farms, studies were conducted on growing black-motley heifers of different lines. As the results of the conducted studies have shown, the live weight of heifers in all age periods of the studied lines at the analyzed enterprises is at the level of class I standard requirements or exceeds them by 6-11%. The average daily weight gains of heifers of the studied lines at the age from birth to 6 months were 690-820 g, at the age of 6-10 months – 570-810 g, at the age of 10- 12 months – 600-750 g, at the age of 12-18 months – 620-680 g.

 There has been identified the bulls with the maximum ejaculate volume

belonging to the line Montvik Chieftain 95679, exceeding by 23,5% on this parameter

bulls of the Simmental lines. The bulls of different genotypes show a reliable negative

correlation in the main signs of sperm production with cosmophysical indicators of solar

and geomagnetic activity. The Raphael’s 3111 lines bulls have been more sensitive to

the learned factors of cosmic influence than Bravo’s 6802 line bulls. Among the Holstein
