Thirteen young purebred bulls and 8 crossbreds were fattened under a semi-intensive system based on farm feeds. Despite a very similar average body mass before slaughter (412.1 vs. 413.1 kg for purebreds and crossbreds, respectively), the F1 crossbreds showed significantly higher warm and cold dressing percentages (58.7 and 58.1%) compared with their purebred counterparts (49.3 and 48.8%), as well as comparable meat quality in terms of physicochemical parameters.
