Relationships of ultrasonic and carcass measurements with retail yield in beef cattle


Relationships of ultrasonic and carcass measurements with retail yield in beef cattle



Livestock Production Science 4(2): 153-164

Subcutaneous fat thicknesses and the area of the longissimus dorsi muscle at 2 positions were measured ultrasonically in 27 Hereford X Aberdeen-Angus steers. Two equipment operators independently performed the ultrasonic evaluations and interpreted each muscle scan print, and 2 methods of interpreting the muscle areas were used. Ultrasonic and carcass measurements were compared.
