CROSS v. PURE BREEDS IN CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 15 January 1915

CROSS v. PURE BREEDS IN CATTLE. as a general rule, most of us think that in tie piriiduction of pure bred annnals, six crosses, as It is termed, with pedigree animnals give us this re- sult; in other words, ii we start with an ordinary nunual, and for six suc cessive generatioiis use pure-bred sires, then the results svitl be essentially pure breeds in the end. That this is mathematically so is easily wvorked out. O or instance, in tiie first crosses, if a pure bred sire is used with an ordinary damn, we get a halt breed, that is to say, one half pedigree ,and oine-halt non pedigree. At the secoiid cross urithi a pedigree sire, again we get three-fourths pure, and one-tourth non pedigree. Ii wie go on in this vay, see wivll find that ib the tiune ive reach the sixth cross se have got purebred, nui only ose sixty-fousrth reverts an animal that is sixty-three sixty-fourths to the non-pedigree an cestry.
