The effects of sex condition, breed type and dietary energy level on muscle fiber characteristics were examined at various ages and related to carcass characteristics and meat palatability. Cattle fed a low-energy diet had a significantly higher percentage of red muscle fibers, larger white muscle fiber areas and a greater percentage area of red muscle fibers than cattle fed a high-energy diet. A significant sex × breed within slaughter group interaction existed, which was complicated due to… CONTINUE READING
