Unformatted text preview: However, the incidence of unacceptable tenderness scores was higher in exotic steers, exotic heifers and <50% Bos indicus steers. While most of this study is logical and consistent, there is an obvious inconsistency between the information found in the abstract and in Table 11. It is actually the > 50% Bos indicus steers that had higher yields of major cuts and not the <50% Bos indicus steers as stated in the abstract. The abstract also states that as fat-trim levels went from 2.54 cm to .64cm, the yields of major cuts decreased more for English steers and heifers and <50% Bos indicus heifers. The data, however, shows that the > 50% Bos indicus steers also experienced roughly the same decrease in yield of major cuts at successive fat-trim levels....
