[Summary]: Five methods of assessing subcutaneous fat cover were compared using male and female Bos indicus - Bos taurus beef cattle. None of the methods was able to accurately predict fat depth. The ESTD FAT technique has the greatest potential because it requires minimal handling. Use of the TRANS site may assist to improve accuracy with the ESTD FAT technique.
