Steps to reproduce
Heifers of 15 and 27 months of age (never previously mated) and multiparous Angus cows were inseminated and conceived to a single Angus sire´s in this study. The animals used in the present work are the entire female progeny since the objective was to evaluate the age of the mother in the reproductive growth and development of the females. All female progenies were weighted from birth to slaughter (435d). Ultrasounds and IGF 1 concentration were performed from rearing to slaughter, where the development and weight of the reproductive offspring were evaluated.
