Abstract
Pairs of half-sib heifers belonging to Zebu breed type, and crosses were divided into two group'i. One group was grazed from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day and were kraaled or yarded without supplementary feeding at night. The heifers in the remammg group (grazed group) were left in the paddocks most of the time (day and night). The heifers in the grazed group grew faster than the nightyarded or kraaled heifers.
