At the end of 28th day and 42nd day, all the birds were weighed and 10% of the housed birds (1 bird/replicate) were selected randomly; slaughtered, and after four minute bleeding time the feathers were removed and carcass manually eviscerated to determine dressing percentage
and parts yield.
In our study, two polymorphic loci, one in the first intron 27 and the other in the 3'UTR of the SUMO3 gene were found to be significantly or extremely significantly associated with the carcass weight, hind leg circumference, hind leg length, loin thickness, fat coverage of carcass, rib eye area, dressing percentage
, hind hoof weight and back fat thickness.

, thigh circumference and chest circumference of primary and secondary section (mean [+ or -] standard error) of broilers meat marketed 35-day-old.
According to Haddad, Husein, and Swedan (2006), there was no effect of castration in lambs for HCW, CCW, dressing percentage
, or LMA.
The values of dressing percentage
in males buffalo calves were in accordance with the study of El-Serafy , Paul  and Spanghero et al.
The results of this study in respect of strain difference in dressing yield of Aseel have been supported by the earlier findings of Sahota and Bhatti (2003) who reported significant differences in dressing percentage
in black, dark brown and light brown varieties of Desi chickens.
Values obtained for the dressing percentage
and breast meat yield in FE chicken were more than 52.
Data on dressing percentage
and abdominal fat is presented in Table V.
05) higher dressing percentage
was found for birds fed diet supplemented with yeast @ 0.
calculated as (Carcass weight/slaughter weight x 100).
Carcass yield expressed in term of dressing percentage
was similarly greater in group GE-2 and GE-3.
05) was observed on animal performance and carcass characteristics, except for dressing percentage
(p < 0.
