The suitability of breast-muscle thickness and subcutaneous fat thickness measurements for the prediction of lean and fat contents of turkey carcasses


, : The suitability of breast-muscle thickness and subcutaneous fat thickness measurements for the prediction of lean and fat contents of turkey carcasses. Roczniki Naukowe Zootechniki 6(1): 45-54

Breast-muscle thickness was estimated at one point by a needle probe for 33 Broad Breasted White females aged 14 mth. The live measurements were compared with those obtained on warm and cooled carcasses. Weight of meat in the carcass was highly significantly correlated with body weight before slaughter (0.51), live breast-muscle thickness (0.58), breast-muscle thickness of the warm carcass (0.50), and breast-muscle thickness of the cold carcass (0.60).
