Short summary
The quantity and quality of beef can be increased through crossing beef bulls with dairy cows. This experiment was conducted to compare carcass traits in young bulls and steers, produced by crossing Holstein-Friesian cows with Hereford bulls. Meat from steers had higher intramuscular fat content and was tenderer and juicier than meat from bulls. Steer IMF was characterized by a more desirable n-6 / n-3 PUFA ratio. Beef from steers is a good choice for consumers who appreciate high-quality meat.
