Abstract
The cattle used in this study were part of the herd of the Imperial Ethiopian College. These cattle are described in an earlier paper (Glenn, et al. 1962). Various projects are under way seeking to obtain basic productivity information on these cattle and to improve them by selection and/or upgrading. The primary purpose of these projects is to develop a beef producing animal from which meat will be exported. Milk production is judged important because of the desire to get rapid, early growth of calves in order that their post-weaning size and thus ability to utilize large amounts of roughage will be at a maximum.
