Short summary
The present study was based on the association of polymorphisms at LEP, CAST, CAPN1, GHR, FABP4 and DGAT1 genes with fattening performance and carcass traits in Simmental bulls. Results indicated that final weight, fattening period, total weight gain and average daily gain differentiated the CAST and CAPN1 marker genotypes. Moreover, a novel effect of the LEP A80V on carcass weight and dressing percentage was observed. The results could be indicative for future studies on beef production.
