The carcass characteristics of two steer genotypes grazed on irrigated leucaena-pangola pasture in the Ord river irrigation area



The carcass characteristics of two steer genotypes grazed on irrigated leucaena-pangola pasture in the Ord river irrigation area



Proceedings of the Australian Society of Animal Production 19: 81-84



Africander X Shorthorn (AS) and Brahman X Shorthorn (BS) steers were grazed for 311 days from weaning on irrigated leucaena-pangola pastures at a stocking rate of 4 animals per ha. Daily weight gain for the 2 groups averaged 0.66 and 0.72 kg resp. (P<0.05). Dressing percentage, fat thickness, fat colour, ultimate pH, meat colour and shear force were similar for the 2 groups, while the adhesion force was significantly greater for BS than for AS steers.
