Abstract

The beef industry has made rapid genetic selection for improved marbling. Although the industry has experienced an increase in USDA Prime-grading carcasses, research using modern day technology on high quality genetic potential cattle has been lagging behind the trend. Therefore, the objective of this study was to determine growth and carcass characteristics of steers with known genetic potential for high marbling capabilities when fed differing nutritional strategies and administering different implant programs.
