Abstract


The aim of this research paper was evaluated the meat performance cocks and hens of breed Oravka after reproductive and laying period. The results from this study show that carcass yield cocks and hens of Oravka were higher in comparison with STN 46 64 15 (72.84, respectively 71.02%). We recorded that sex had statistically significant effect on some carcass characteristics (live weight, carcass weight, breast weight, things weight and back weight). Anyhow, we found that sex affected abdominal fat weight (in profit of hens) and percentage of some carcass parts - percentage of breast (in profit of hens) and percentage of things and back (in profit of cocks).
