ABSTRACT
One hundred Aberdeen Angus and AA x Hereford heifer-calves (158 ± 9.6 kg) were penned and randomly allocated to two feeding frequencies: T2 - twice daily (8:00 and 17:00 h) and T4 - four times daily (8:00, 11:00, 14:00 and 17:00 h). The animals were fed for 69 days a commercial pelleted concentrate and hay ration for 69 days until slaughter. Hay and concentrate intake were recorded daily. Calves were fasted (15 h period) and weighed at 15-day intervals. Dressing percentage, 11° rib surface and fat-bone-muscle relation were estimated in the carcasses. Feeding frequency had no effect (P>0.05) on the productive parameters evaluated.
