Herd management programs are very important for controlling and monitoring of young cattle breeding. However, missing methodical basics are the reason for a low application of these programs in practice. The analysis of this study are based on measurements of body weight, back fat thickness and the assessment of body condition by body condition score (BCS), that were recorded on female growing dairy cattle. Furthermore, the onset of puberty was investigated by using the hormone progesterone. With the help of these results models for the quantification of growth courses were developed and should provide a basis for the development of herd management programs. Based on additional data from other populations, the selected models provide the possibility to generate standard curves for young dairy cattle.
