20% level of dietary Na+ are scarce for the best performance of broilers, the objective of present study was to investigate the effect of different levels of sodium and dietary electrolyte balance on body weight gain, feed conversion ratio, feed intake, dressing percentage
, and breast muscle yield and to determine the optimum level of sodium and DEB in broiler rations.
The net meat weight, dressing percentage
and meat percentage were also higher in the crossbred sheep than in the Small Tailed Han sheep.
For 3'UTR SNPs of SUMO3 gene, individuals with the TT genotype was significantly associated with higher dressing percentage
, hind leg circumference, eye muscle area (p<0.
As the results showed no significant differences in dressing percentage
and the relative weight of the viscera internal edible among the treatments T2, T3, T4, compared with the control treatment T1, these result show not significant differences between the treatments T2, T3, T4 in the relative weight of the heart and gizzard, liver and spleen compared with the control treatment T1.
Back fat thickness and the pH were probable factors affecting the WBSF values, meat from animals fed for 78 days were more tender when compared with animals fed for 36 days (Table 3) Time on feed did not affect dressing percentage
, thaw loss, cooking loss, or color values.
was determined by dividing total dressed meat by the total live weight of animal.
Breed differences in dressing percentage

Dr Beltranena told Feedinfo News Service: "The barley diet will give you a lower dressing percentage
because the hind gut tends to thicken and when you remove it at evisceration then the carcass weighs a little lower so hog farmers need to market their hogs a little heavier, by two to three kilos, but that also means two to three days more in the barn.
Effect of betaine supplementation on mean FCR and Dressing Percentage
and AFP of heat stressed broiler chicks.
No significant differences were observed in dressing percentage

compared to the other groups.
On day-42 three birds from each pen were randomly selected for blood collection to determine serum lipid profile using Blood Biochemical Analyzer antibody titre using HI and ELISA kits and were killed to find out carcass yield in terms of dressing percentage
was calculated using the data of HCW and final BW obtained before loading the animals to the slaughterhouse.
