Contribution of Carcass Cuts in Meat Production of Kadaknath, Aseel and Vanraja Breeds of Chicken

DOI:Coming soon...


A comparative study was conducted to find out the differences in contribution of carcass cuts in meat production from indigenous breeds such as Vanraja, Aseel and Kadaknath breeds with respect to a broiler strain, Cobb-400. The primal cuts of Cobb-400 had significantly (P<0.05) higher weight than all indigenous breeds. Among indigenous breeds Aseel exhibited higher weight of all primal cuts except neck while lowest values were recorded in Kadaknath with the exception of wing and breast. The highest weight cut was breast in Cobb-400 and Kadaknath while in Vanraja and Aseel, the maximum values were observed for leg. Neck was recorded as lowest weight cut in all chicken breeds.
