Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine level of the influence of breed and sex, as well as their interaction on slaughtering traits of beef halves. The study was conducted on 80 beef cattle of which 40 were Simmental (20 male and 20 female) and 40  beef cattle (20 male and 20 female) were meat crossbreeds of Charolais, Limousin, Blonde d’Aquitaine cattle. Sex had a significant effect on slaughtering traits (P<0,001). Male of beef cattle had a significantly more favorable parameter values of weight slaughtering halves and netto daily weight gain (P<0,001). The breed had also a significant impact on slaughtering parameters (P<0,001). Significantly better parameter values of weight slaughtering halves, netto daily weight gain and dressing percentage were found in a group of crossbred beef cattle (P<0,001). Therefore, from the obtained results it can be concluded that the crossbreed cattle had a significantly better quality of beef halves (P<0,001).
