Development of ribeye area and fat thickness evaluated by ultrasound



Development of ribeye area and fat thickness evaluated by ultrasound



Proceedings of the 7th World Congress on Genetics Applied to Livestock Production, Montpellier, France, August, 2002 Session 11: 0-4



Yearling bullocks with 329 kg initial average weight from four genetic groups (30 1/2 Aberdeen-Angus x Nelore; 30 1/2 Canchim x Nelore; 30 1/2 Simmental x Nelore and 25 pure Nelore) were used to evaluate muscle development and backfat thickness by ultrasound in feedlot. Body weight and ultrasound measurements were taken every 28 days. The animals were slaughtered at approximately 120 days of feeding period and at a minimum of 3 mm backfat thickness (BFT) as estimated by ultrasound.
