Composition of pure bred and cross bred steers part 1 comparison of angus charolais angus south devon angus hereford angus and friesian angus steers



New Zealand Journal of Experimental Agriculture 4(1): 5-8



The preslaughter, hot carcass, boneless meat, and bone weights ranked from heaviest to lightest in the following order: Charolais-Angus, Friesian-Angus, South Devon-Angus, Hereford-Angus, and Angus-Angus. The Friesian-Angus had the heaviest weight of excess fat and the lowest percentage of meat, whereas the Charolais-Angus had the lowest weight of fat and the highest percentage of meat of the breeds compared. This information should enable selection of specific breeds for crossbreeding systems and the most efficient use of all the breeds available.
