Estimation of carcass composition in cattle. 1. Estimation of carcass composition in live cattle from ultrasound measurements and live weight


Archiv fur Tierzucht 36(3-4): 315-324
Estimation of carcass composition in cattle. 1. Estimation of carcass composition in live cattle from ultrasound measurements and live weight
Ultrasonic scanning at the level of the 1st and 5th lumbar vertebrae was carried out on 648 bulls of 5 breeds and 1 crossbred just prior to slaughter at 400 or 500 kg live weight. Weights of carcass cuts and carcass dissection data were also obtained. Repeatabilities of ultrasonic measurements were 0.73-0.98. Correlations between ultrasonic and carcass loin-eye area were 0.68-0.80. Correlations of carcass cut weights with ultrasonic and carcass loin-eye areas and live weight are tabulated.
