Data of sixty finished, crossbred lambs were used to develop prediction equations of total weight of retail-ready cuts (SUM). These cuts were the leg, sirloin, loin, rack, shoulder, neck, riblets, shank, and lean trim (85/15). Measurements were taken on live lambs and on both hot and cold carcasses. A four-terminal bioelectrical impedance analyzer (BIA) was used to measure resistance (Rs, ohms) and reactance (Xc, ohms). Distances between detector terminals (L, centimeters) were recorded… CONTINUE READING
