Four hundred and thirty six young entire males from 15 different cattle breeds and 5 European countries (United Kingdom, Denmark, Spain, Italy and France) were studied. All animals were fed ad libitum with a standardized diet comprising barley, soya and chopped straw. Slaughter was about 15 months of age. There were high variability with carcass and longissimus dorsi measurements between the studied breeds.
