Prediction of primal and subprimal beef yields with video image analysis
MetadataShow full item record
An ability to segregate carcasses based on both primal and subprimal yields would further facilitate value-based marketing in the beef industry. This study was conducted to evaluate Video Image Analysis (VIA) output to predict fabricated primal and subprimal yields. Carcasses were selected based on yield grade (YG 1, YG 2, YG 3, YG 4, and YG 5) as well as hot carcass weight (< 341 kg and ≥ 341 kg). A yield dissection was performed and at each step in fabrication, recovered product weights for each carcass to remain in the study summed to ≥ 99 % of the starting chilled weight of each primal and ...
