The purpose of this study is to estimate genetic and phenotypic parameters for birth weight in Brown and Simmental calves raised at Altindere State Farm in Van. The least squares means of birth weight for Brown and Simmental calves were 40.13±0.41 and 40.04±0.27 kg, respectively. The effect of year and sex on birth weight were highly significant (P
