  1. H2O, carcass water; %H2O, water as a percent of carcass weight; FAT, carcass fat; %FAT, fat as a percent of carcass weight; ASH, carcass ash; %ASH, ash as a percent of carcass weight; PROT, carcass protein, %PROT, protein as a percent of carcass weight. Values are expressed as least square means (LSMEANS) ± SEM. LSMEANS in bold are significantly different than the control (HGC) (critical P < 0.0125) after Bonferroni correction within each sex.
