Abstract
Twenty Belgian Blue bulls slaughtered at different times were measured and weighed alive before killing. After killing, both the whole carcasses and the retail cuts were weighed. All the weights were multiplied by their corresponding meat price. Consequently, there were four different slaughter values and 22 variants on this market value. A single market value (retail cuts x corresponding value) is used as a reference. Correlations between different body measurements and values and this reference have been calculated. By obtaining linear regressions, different data collected in living and slaughtered cattle can be converted to this reference value when so needed. The conclusion is drawn that a production index can be calculated by using only the live- and carcass weights because of the high correlation between weights and reference value. One need only make certain that the descendants of A.I. sire are classified at least as E-animals (SEUROP-classification). The Sanitel identification system makes it possible to combine slaughterhouse data (carcass weight and SEUROP classification) with breeding data and environmental information in order to do estimated breeding (BLUP) calculations.
