Abstract
The birth weights and live weight gains to six months of age of calves of the three Uganda breeds of cattle kept at Entebbe and Mbarara are analysed. A significant difference in birth weights of both male and female calves is demonstrated, the Ankole being heavier than the Zebu at Mbarara in both sexes. No significant difference in live weight gains to six months of age is shown between breeds.
