Brown Swiss x Holstein crossbreds compared with pure Holsteins for calving traits, body weight, backfat
thickness, fertility, and body measurements.
thickness at the 10th rib was monitored at d 109 of gestation, and at weaning (d 24 [+ or -] 1 of lactation) using an ultrasonic device (Agroscan A16, Angouleme, France).
Because of a favorable lipid profile [low SAFAs, high MUFAs and PUFAs, and rich in linolenic fatty acid (C18:3n3)], canola oil is used to reformulate meat products replacing pork backfat
(BAEK et al.
The left side of the carcass was cut between the 13th rib and the 1st lumbar vertebrae to measure backfat
thickness and the longissimus muscle area.
In the right side of each carcass, backfat
thickness (with calipers with a precision of 0.
No animal with backfat
like that could taste bad, and the meat from this bear was amazing--a sweet, yes, almost nutty, flavor that lent itself well to a whole host of recipes, from simple grilled steaks to slow braises that really pulled out the taste of the acorns it had been feeding on.
Daily intake (DI), daily weight gain (DWG), feed: gain ratio (FGR) and backfat
thickness were evaluated at the end of the growing and finishing phase.
Body weights, hip heights, rectal temperatures for health assessment, and ultrasound backfat
thicknesses were taken every 14 days.
2010) reported that the T1530C mutation in LXRa exon 2 had significant effect on backfat
