Growth, slaughter and carcass traits of Corriedale lambs reared on natural pasture in Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil)

Growth, slaughter and carcass traits of Corriedale lambs reared on natural pasture in Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil)

ITEA Produccion Animal 94(1): 63-73

For 41 Corriedale wethers on pasture, weaned at 45 days of age and slaughtered in November, December or January (at 100, 130 or 150 days of age respectively), body weight at slaughter averaged 16.07, 18.44 and 22.59 kg, and carcass weight averaged 6.07, 6.90 and 8.69 kg, the differences between age groups being non-significant. Age at slaughter significantly affected carcass conformation score, but had no significant effect on the percentages of leg, shoulder or rib in the carcass.
