Relationship between Japanese beef marbling standard and intramuscular lipid in the M. longissimus thoracis of Japanese Black and American Wagyu Cattle. Academic Article uri icon


  • Japanese Black and American Wagyu steers (n = 155) were slaughtered and graded under typical Japanese production conditions, and then analyzed for percentage ether-extractable fat at the 6th thoracic vertebra. The percentage of intramuscular lipid was used to develop a prediction equation for the Japanese beef marbling standard (BMS) with R(2) = 07619.
