ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Southern Carcass Improvement Project which began in 2009 with the collaboration of Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Virginia. The project was conducted to measure the impact that a single generation of high quality Aberdeen Angus cattle genetics can have on carcass performance when mated to zebus cattle. As further mentioned, the Angus grouped cattles finished with heavier carcass weight. INSETS: Idea for carcass project hatches;Here's how they made it count.
