Abstract

In an attempt figures on the relationship between performance traits such as average daily weight gain (ADWG), amount and quality of meat produced and physiological response to exogenic ACTH challenge in the initial phase of fattening an experiment has been conducted with 25 Black and Red Holstein-Friesian bull calves under loose housing conditions using roughage based fattening diets. Basal values were determined in jugular blood samples collected prior to i.m. administration of 60-120 IU ACTH (0.313-0.628 IU/kg LW, EXACTHIN inj. Richter G. Vegyészeti Gyár Rt., Budapest). Repeated samples were collected after 2 and 4 h, respectively. Even though positive relationship was found between the change in plasma cortisol level and ADWG in the rearing period (r=0.35) the correlation coefficient did not seem to reach significant level of probability (P>0.05). Response in cholesterol suggested also close and significant relation (r=0.61, P
