Effects of age, breed and method of carcass suspension on bullock beef palatability, carcass traits, histological measurements and certain age and yield predictors



Effects of age, breed and method of carcass suspension on bullock beef palatability, carcass traits, histological measurements and certain age and yield predictors



Dissertation Abstracts International, B 37(12): 5891



The sample of 115 steer carcasses studied represented 4 slaughter ages and 15 different genotypes stratified into 4 breed groups. The right side of each carcass was suspended immediately after slaughter in the conventional manner, while the left side was suspended via the obturator foramen. Data indicated that age at slaughter had significant effects on conformation scores, marbling scores, longissimus dorsi muscle areas, fat thickness measures and yield grades.
