Abstract

A study was performed to determine the feasability of using a measurement of ribeye depth (RED) from a longitudinal ultrasound image to estimate ribeye area (REA). The correlation between RED obtained with ultrasound and REA from a tracing was high for both implanted (r = .49) and non-implanted (r = .45) steers. The mean bias between predicted REA and actual REA was not different from zero. This analysis shows that RED could be an accurate indicator of REA.
