Prediction of retail product and trimmable fat yields from the four primal cuts in beef cattle using ultrasound or carcass data.

Abstract

The most widely used system to predict percentage of retail product from the four primal cuts of beef is USDA yield grade. The purpose of this study was to determine whether routine ultrasound measurements and additional rump measurements could be used in place of the carcass measurements used in the USDA yield grade equation to more accurately predict the… (More)
