Livestock Carcass Calculator

By Washington State University

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


WSU Livestock Carcass Grade & Cutability Calculator is a simple way to calculate carcass yield grade, dressing percentages, and cutability of beef, pork and lamb carcasses. The App can calculate yield grade and cutability from live animal estimates or ultrasound data from cattle, pigs and lambs, and can be used to calculate dressing percentage, yield grade and cutability of beef, pork and lamb carcasses using actual carcass data. Just enter live or carcass data information and the calculator will automatically provide desired information.
The Calculator lets you determine:

• The Beef Carcass calculator will calculate estimated yield grade, dressing percentage, actual yield grade, percent retail cuts, and assist in determining the USDA quality grade by reviewing USDA degrees of marbling standards for A maturity cattle carcasses (less than 30 months of age).
• The Pork Carcass Calculator will calculate estimated percent muscle, dressing percentage, and actual percent muscle for both ribbed and unribbed carcasses. It can also adjust for carcasses with the skin and head removed.
• The Lamb Carcass Calculator will calculate estimated yield grade, dressing percentage, actual yield grade, and percent of boneless closely trimmed retail cuts.
The WSU Livestock Carcass Grade & Cutability Calculator is an excellent way for producers, niche marketers, butchers, livestock judges, meat evaluators, and youth to quickly determine the yield grade and cutability of beef, pork or lamb carcasses.
