Carcass composition studies. 2. Influences of breed, sex and diet on gross composition of the carcass and fatty acid composition of the adipose tissue



Carcass composition studies. 2. Influences of breed, sex and diet on gross composition of the carcass and fatty acid composition of the adipose tissue



Poultry Science 54(4): 1230-1238



Light Brahma (LB), White Plymouth Rock (WPR), Single Comb White Leghorn (SCWL), Black Jersey Giant (BJG) and Dark Cornish (DC) chicks were fed 3 diets of widely varying calorie:protein ratios to 4 wk of age. In the 5 breeds resp., live-weight gain averaged 194, 321, 246, 342 and 302 g, differences being significant. There were also significant breed differences in carcass composition. In the 5 breeds, the proportion of total lipid in the carcass averaged 10.4, 10.2, 8.8, 9.5 and 8.6% resp.
