Analysis of weight measurements made on cattle belonging to the local "creole" zebu^ breed have been conducted in Guadeloupe. The results of pre-weaning growth rate and fattening evolution of weight suggest this breed could be of great interest for meat production, specially on pasture. Such systems could use in a best way the adaptability of the breed to tropical constraints.
