Is Your Beef Finished? Use Frame and Body Condition Score to Find Out
Is your animal finished? The answer depends on its breed, frame size, sex, and even what your customers are looking for on their plate. If your customers want reasonably well-marbled beef, you’re more likely to give them what they want if you’re raising smaller framed animals. In general, smaller framed animals finish in a shorter amount of time, and can put on fat in pasture.
