Australian Lowline steers get
74% to 76% dress out when
put to the test by Queensland butcher.
Australian Lowline small Angus cattle developed scientifically
The proof's in the eating. In an evaluation in Queensland, dressing percentages for two purebred 25-month-old Lowline steers reached 76.13 and 74.21, well above the 70% figure aspired to by other breeds. The figures were provided by The Raw Sausage, Queensland butchers for 43 years. Butcher Graham Zahl attributes the high dress out percentage to lower bone content.
