Fiber-type proportions and diameters in the longissimus muscle of beef heifers undergoing catch-up (compensatory) growthDownload
Fifty-three Hereford crossbred heifers (211 ± 28(mean ± SD) kg, 197 ± 13 d of age at day 1) were used to study the effects of mild, chronic feed restriction followed by refeeding on some longissimus muscle fiber characteristics. Five animals were slaughtered on day 1 for analysis of initial...
Twenty-four Hereford crossbred heifers weighing 222 kg (22 kg SD) and aged 226 d (13 d SD) on day 0 were used to investigate the effects of feed restriction (period 1) followed by realimentation (period 2) on hepatic and longissimus muscle glycogen metabolites and meat quality. The heifers were...
Growth performance and carcass composition in beef heifers undergoing catch-up (compensatory) growthDownload
Fifty-three Hereford crossbred heifers (211 ± 28 (mean ± SD) kg; 197 ± 13 d of age at day 1) were used to study catch-up growth and its effects on carcass composition. Five heifers were slaughtered on day 1; the remaining 48 were randomly penned in groups of six and assigned to treatments as...
The cooking and eating quality characteristics of rib-eye roasts obtained from cows after removal from the breeding herd and after 8 or 16 wk of realimentation were determined. Evaluations of the effects of maturity class (physiological age) and external fatness on meat quality were also made....
