Abstract

Ultrasound carcass data from yearling Angus bulls were analyzed to determine trends in ribeye area. Bulls with a heavier scan weight had larger ribeyes. Also, bulls with an increased amount of 12-13th rib fat had larger ribeyes. The most efficient bulls with the largest ribeyes had the greatest amount of external rib fat.
