Slaughter cows (n = 120), representing four genotypes (British, continental, Bos indicus, and dairy) and three body condition classes (thin, moderate, and fat), n = 10 per subclass, were used to identify practical and accurate prediction equations for the yield of boneless manufacturing beef of specific fat percentages. Cows and their carcasses were weighed and evaluated for USDA yield and quality grade factors and for physical muscle and fat indicators. Carcass sides were fabricated; total fat… CONTINUE READING
