limosin angus cattle

Meat quality and marbling properties of Angus, Simmental, Charolais, and Limousin steers (4×16) have been compared at an average intramuscular fat content (IMF) of 3.25% in the M. longissimus dorsi.

The steers are fattened on a forage-based diet until the desired, ultrasonically estimated IMF content is reached – which resulted in considerably different growth and carcass characteristics.

The Angus group shows a growth rate similar to Simmental and Charolais while Limousin grows slower, becomes the oldest, and provided the heaviest carcasses and best conformation.

Angus carcasses show the lowest weight but the highest fatness score.  Marbling is equal for all breeds.

Angus and Limousin beef is more tender on sensory assessment than Simmental beef, corresponding to differences found in shear force (non-significant) and myofibrillar fragmentation index measured at 48 h post-mortem.

The flavor is similar among breed groups while juiciness is highest for Limousin and lowest for Angus. The juicier beef simultaneously shows the highest drip but the lowest cooking losses.  – Attribution: National Library of Medicine; National Institutes of Health;
