Ideal rib or rump fat
« on: July 17, 2009, 07:02:31 AM »
We just scanned a steer that had l a little more fat than we thought he should, he is not a show steer as we sell grass fed grain finished beef.  This is the first steer we have scanned as usually we don't spend the money to scan steers.  This led me to wonder what would be the ideal rib or rump fat to slaughter a steer.  His was .44 rump and .31 he is also 13 months old.  Could he have finished early?  We don't use any steriods or hormones they do it on there own with grass and feed.  Any info will be appreciated.
