Banteng is a wild ancestor of Bali cattle that currently exists and is a potential source of genes for improving the genetic quality of local cattle currently available, including Bali cattle. The aim of this study was to identify the performance of birth weight from Bali Banteng cross (F2 = 75% Bali: 25% Banteng) that were developed in the UPT-PTHPT of Livestock and Animal Health Service Office of South Sulawesi Province. This study used 12 of Bali Banteng cross calves (7 females and 5 males), these calves were the result of cross mating between Bali cows with Bali Banteng cross (F1 50% Banteng and 50% Bali) bull with AI technology. The parameters measured were birth weight and calf body dimensions at birth (birth weight). The results showed that the birth weight of male calves had a higher weight (15.80 vs. 15.29 kg), as well as the performance of body dimensions ie. body length, chest circumference, and height showed that male calves had higher performance. The conclusion of this preliminary study was the growth performance of male Bali Banteng cross calves have better growth performance than female calves, and this correspond with several report that shows the superior performance of male calves rather than female performances.
