Using real-time ultrasound and live estimates to determine the carcass composition of beef cattle



Using real-time ultrasound and live estimates to determine the carcass composition of beef cattle



Beef cattle research in Texas, 1989: 81-88



234 commercial steers were selected from a feedlot, and fat thickness, rib-eye area, yield grade and quality grade were estimated on the live animals by trained evaluators. During slaughter, ultrasonic determinations were taken at the 12th rib for fat thickness and rib-eye area. Subsequently, processing data were obtained for 1 side of each carcass, and the weights of closely trimmed, boneless wholesale cuts as percentages of carcass weight were determined.
