Abstract

In North America, beef carcass composition or yield evaluation plays an important role for determining carcass market value. Also yield analyses are fundamental for the evaluation of growth and for genetic selection in animal production. There are two yield algorithms in use in North America based on the main yield assessment approaches (saleable or total lean meat yield) and both provide important information to different sectors of the beef value chain.
