Abstract

Meat quality is an important issue in beef production from consumer and processing perspectives. Significant differences in most carcass attributes between genotypes and locations were demonstrated by Rehman et al. (1998). It is important to consider the carcass traits in a wholistic context to identify the most important variables affecting carcass quality. This paper characterises the carcasses of Brahman x Hereford (BH), Braford x Hereford (BfH) and Africander x Hereford (AfH) steers in different environments (locations) using multivariate (stepwise and canonical discriminant) analysis.
