Accuracy of estimation of duck carcass meatiness and fatness, depending on the age


Acta Academiae Agriculturae ac Technicae Olstenensis, Zootechnica ( 48): 137-147
Accuracy of estimation of duck carcass meatiness and fatness, depending on the age
From 1 to 11 weeks of age, 21 male and 21 female ducks of strain A-44 were slaughtered weekly, and the carcasses were dissected. Multiple regression equations for estimating meat content (Y) and fat content (U) of the carcass were derived. For estimating meat content, the best equation was Y = 0.219X1 + 161.71X2, where X1 is body weight and X2 is breast muscle thickness.
