Abstract


The researches were made on intensively fattened kids up to the weight of 40-42 kg from two genetic types: F1 Boer x Carpathian hybrids and Carpathian breed.
The hybrids had the bigger dressing percentage with 5,42 percent points comparatively to the Carpathian breed.
The carcasses of hybrids (3 from each genotype) had more meat and less bones comparative to the mother breed, the differences being significant.
The meat/bones report was 3,8/1 at hybrids beside 3,2/1 at the Carpathian breed.
The areas of the leg and Longissimus dorsi muscle sections at hybrids were bigger with 26,1%, respectively 19,1%, comparatively to the Carpathian breed.
Also the muscle rate index of the leg had higher values at hybrids than the mother breed, all the differences between genotypes being statistically significant
