The density of bovine limb bones

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The effects of breed-type, sex and age on the density of four bovine limb bones were studied. The density of the four limb bones increased significantly with age, but the effects of breed-type and sex were variable. The results are discussed with reference to the densiometric method of predicting carcass fatness.
