Summary. The article presents the results of a study of meat productivity of purebred bulls of the Kazakh white-headed breed in comparison with the Red Steppe and their crosses with ½ and ¾ blood according to the Kazakh white-headed breed. The studies were carried out in the Breeding farm kolkhoz named after Lenin, Surovikinsky district of Volgograd region. For this purpose, four groups of experimental 10-month bulls were formed: the first (experimental I) group - purebred animals of the Kazakh white-headed breed; the second (II experimental) group – purebred animals of the Red Steppe breed; the third (experimental group III) – cross-bred animals with ½ blood, obtained by crossing Red Steppe cows and bulls of the Kazakh white-headed breed; the fourth (experimental IV) group – crosses of animals with ¼ blood, obtained by crossing cows ½ blood and bulls of the Kazakh white-headed breed. The experimental animals were kept in similar conditions in separate rooms, separately for groups, with free access to walking yards. Our experimental studies have shown that purebred Kazakh white-headed animals after years of selection aimed at improving beef productivity and quality have a higher genetic predisposition to produce high-quality beef in comparison with cross-bred analogues. At the end of the experiment, larger animals were obtained from crossed bulls in comparison with purebred ones.
