The animals were nine Zebus, (Plate1), eight West African Shorthorns (WASH) (Plate2) and eighteen Sangas (Plate3)
Similarly, the fore- and hind-quarter weights of the Sanga were not significantly different from those of the WASH (P > 0.
The Zebu had the heaviest offal, followed by the Sanga and with the WASH being the least.
Again, there were no significant differences between the external carcass components (head, tail, legs and skin) of the Sanga and the WASH.
Pearson correlation (r) between live and carcass weights and all carcass components of the Sanga Cattle

The derived regression equation for carcass weight of the Sanga is as follows: Y= - 51.
