Resumen

The influence of body condition on teaser bull libido from commercial dairy herds  at the Cattle Raising Enterprise Triángulo 1, in  the province of Camagüey, Cuba  was assessed. A number of 140 crossbred males (Holstein / Zebu) aged 13-75 months old were examined from 2007 to 2010.  A linear regression model to evaluate the libido (0-10 scale) was used as independent variable for the  body condition (1-5  scale). Libido reached 6.59 points ± 1.751 (typical deviation), considered between good and very good, and the body condition was 2.96 ± 0.598 (typical deviation), optimum for estrus detection.  Libido increase was observed in relation with body condition maybe due to the high incidence of anestrus, and also due to limited rest with cows in estrus.
