Estimation of beef carcass composition using velocity of sound and electromagnetic scanning

Proceedings, 38th International Congress of Meat Science and Technology, August 23-28, 1992, Clermont Ferrand, France: 891-894

Estimation of beef carcass composition using velocity of sound and electromagnetic scanning

The accuracy of velocity of sound (VOS) and electromagnetic scanning (EMS) was assessed for prediction of lean percentage in beef carcasses. VOS, EMS, hot carcass weight and P8 fat depth measurements were taken on carcasses of 28 Hereford X Aberdeen-Angus steers, within 1 h of slaughter. After overnight chilling, the sides were boned and percentage lean was determined chemically. The mean carcass weight was 243+or-46.8 kg and lean percentage 66.7+or-2.6.

Lean tissue has greater electrical conductivity than fat because of a higher content of water and electrolytes present in the lean tissue. Based on total body electrical conductivity (TOBEC) index of carcass quarters, prediction equations of weigh...
