Estimation of carcass composition in cattle using some carcass measurements. 2. Testing of combined carcass traits

Estimation of carcass composition in cattle using some carcass measurements. 2. Testing of combined carcass traits

An account is given of the prediction of carcass composition in German Simmental and German Black Pied young bulls, using 11 combinations of 3-14 measurements on the dissected half- carcass. It was concluded that the percentage of carcass fat and lean may be estimated on the basis of combining 2 backfat thickness measurements, 2 conformation measurements and the percentage of internal fat, and the bone content may be predicted using a combination of 4 conformation measurements.

Carcass measurements and a comparison of the predictive efficiency of sample joint composition, carcass specific gravity determinations and carcass measurements. Correlations of 12 measurements on the carcase and 9 of offals with carcase composition were simple and of no value for predicting the composition. Prediction of carcase composition by the different methods is discussed.
