American Angus Association (AAA) has collected data for genetic evaluation of marbling (MRB), longissimus muscle area (LMA), subcutaneous fat depth (SQF), and carcass weight (CWT) since 1974 (Wilson et al., 1993). In 1997, that genetic evaluation was augmented with a separate evaluation of ultrasound indicator traits measured on yearling bulls and heifers. These data are now analyzed simultaneously in national cattle evaluation (NCE; MacNeil and Northcutt, 2008). Today, firms also genotype… CONTINUE READING
