Abstract

Research results presented here indicate a 10% advantage for double-muscled × normal calves in terms of pounds of trimmed retail cuts per day of age at marketing. No undesirable side effects occurred in either production or performance, and there was little or no reduction in carcass quality grade at marketing.
