Abstract. Title ofthe paper: Description on the growth of female cows of different race
Continuously won weight data from the birth up to the adult animal of female cows of the races Charolais, Fleckvieh and Uckermärker were used for the determination of best fitted functions with respect to some' optimum functions from different growth-functions like exponential-, Gompertz-, logisfic-, Bertalanffy-, tanhand Janoschek-function. The four-parametric Richards- and Janoschek-function describe the natural growth (monthly increases) most exact. The exponential-function is also suitable for the describtion of the weight-development.
