Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 LETHBRIOQE HERALD November Sonic probe checks edible meat content The days of visually judging the amount of edible meat in a live animal are limited. Electronics are now doing the job faster and more ac- curately. Don technician for the livestock branch of Agriculture is one of four persons in Alberta qualified to operate an electronic sensing machine which can determine the 3 herds contest awards Only three herds of cattle contested awards at the Charolais section of the 3rd annual Rocky Mountain Livestock Show at the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion Tuesday. Sandan Charolais of was the walk- away leader copping both female and male grand cham- pion awards as well as the reserve grand champion bull title.

He is testing cattle this week at the 3rd annual Rocky Mountain Livestock Show and Sale at the Exhibition Pavilion. Called the sonic the machine utilizes sound waves which penetrate the animal's the fat layer and the lean meat rib eye area. The rib eye the main part of a club is a guide to the amount of edible meat throughout the animal the larger the rib the more edible meat in the dressed carcass. The first step in the animal is to pour any type of oil on a selected spot on the back of the animal. Because all cattle are graded at a slaughter house between the llth and 12th the probe is used in the same place to give a representative redding of the available meat in the car- cass. The oil is needed to remove any air trapped in the hair. Two readings are taken between the selected one reading one third of the dis- tance from the top of the rib eye and another one third from the bottom of the rib eye. Mr. Betton said the probe emits sound waves silimilar to radar. Some waves penetrate the hide and are returned to openings in the probe to record the thickness of it. Other waves penetrate the fat layer and are returned while others penetrate the rib eye area and are returned to give the thickness of both parts. He said with two lean meat measurements applied to a basic the exact area of rib eye can be determined. The machine is used basically to determine the best breeding he said. Because the rib eye is an indicator of the meatiness of the rest of the the amount of meat that can be eaten can be determined. Since rib eye area is an inherited by breeding animals with a large rib eye the calves should produce large rib eyes. This means the animal will produce more bringing more money for the producer.
