Validation of the 9-11th rib cut to estimate the chemical composition of the dressed carcass and of the whole empty body of Zebu cattle



Validation of the 9-11th rib cut to estimate the chemical composition of the dressed carcass and of the whole empty body of Zebu cattle



Livestock Production Science 93(3): 245-253



This study was conducted to validate the 9-11th rib cut to estimate the chemical composition of the carcass and of the empty body weight (EBW) of Zebu cattle. Nineteen Zebu steers with initial body weight of 266.5+or-32.2 kg were used. Four steers were slaughtered at the beginning to compose the reference group; three were fed at maintenance level, and the remaining were allotted to different planes of nutrition (5.0%, 35.0% and 65.0% concentrate levels in the diets, DM basis).
