Random matings of 10 Charolais sires and eight Limousin sires to crossbred cows produced 392 steers and heifers that were used to evaluate genetic influences on beef palatability. Longissimus lumborum steaks were measured for shear force at 1, 4, 7, 14, 21, and 35 d postmortem and for taste panel attributes at 14 d postmortem. Longer postmortem aging periods resulted in lower (P < .05) shear force values for progeny from all 18 sires. Shear force variation among sires did not diminish during… CONTINUE READING
