2015) conducted a research with crossbred dairy-origin calves (Holstein-Zebu) and described hot and cold carcass yields
of 54 and 52%, respectively, for the treatment that received lower concentrate level (17%).
Therefore, the purpose of this study is to test the effects of turmeric powder added to broiler diet from 0 to 10 g/kg on body weight (BW), weight gain (WG), feed intake (FI), feed conversion ratio (FCR), carcass yield
and intestinal microflora of broilers.
This present study was carried out aiming to evaluate and quantifying the leading causes of damage to animal skin and carcass associated with pig slaughterhouse waiting and resting area management, along with assessing how glucose, sodium bicarbonate and vitamin E added to drinking water during pre-slaughter fasting in the farm may affect carcass yield
, relative organ weights (liver, heart, stomach and kidneys) and the quality of pork meat.
expressed in term of dressing percentage was similarly greater in group GE-2 and GE-3.
americana, while both the visceral weights reported by Crichton (1979, 1980) and the carcass yields
reported by Blood et al.
The value obtained for the carcass yield
and meat composition corresponds with the findings of Joseph et al.
Because it buys predominantly bone-in beef, rather than primals, carcass yield
is very important.
These technologies are used today to help carcass yield
grading, least-cost formulations, meat colour assessment, fat colour assessment, waterholding capacity during storage and processing and even genetic improvement of meat quality.
Growth, carcass yield
and thigh skin tensile strength of four commercial broiler strains.
After feeding trial, all steers were fasted for 24 h and slaughtered at a commercial meat abattoir to assess carcass yield
These weights were used to calculate the cold carcass yield
(CCY) (%) = (CCW/FW) x 100 and warm carcass yield
(WCY) (%) = (WCW/FW) x 100.
The final live weight, carcass weight and carcass yield
were higher (p < 0.
Similarly, carcass yield
grade was not significantly different between treatments.
The present work indicated that polymorphisms in ACSL5 might be important genetic factors affecting meat quality and carcass yield
in Chinese Simmental-cross steers.
The hot carcass weight was recorded (HCW, with the head and feet), carcass yield
(CY) was calculated, and the carcass were later refrigerated (4-6[degrees]C) for 16-24 h.
