Description or explanation
Maturity scoring provides a scale for the assessment of physiological age of beef carcase. The term, ossification, refers to the cartilage turning to bone in the spinous processes in three sections along the backbone - sacral (tail), lumbar (loin) and thoracic (head). The process starts in the sacral region in the form of red spots and as the process increases, turns to hard, yellow bones. The shape and colour of the rib bones are also used to determine maturity. Maturity is measured in standardized increments with the lowest being 100 and the highest being 590. MSA grading systems uses Maturity score as one of the measurements to determine the eating quality outcome of a Carcase.
