Abstract

Two-, three- and four-breed rotational crossbreeding systems were evaluated for reproduction and weaning traits over four generations. Angus (A), Brahman
 (B), Charolais (C) and Hereford (H) breeds were included such that each rotation system included B. Three- and four-breed rotation systems weaned more and heavier calves than two-breed rotation systems. Rotation combinations including C weaned
 heavier calves but generally had lower weaning rates.
