Sažetak
Istrian cattle are one of the autochthonous cattle breeds in Croatia. On national level, more than twenty years Croatia has supported the revitalization of the population through direct subsidies to the breeders of Istrian cattle. Regional government supported different programs of economic reaffirmation of Istrian cattle as long term sustainable model for preserving the breed. Actual program is the affirmation of the breed through the production, processing and marketing of Istrian beef meat. In order to better understand production opportunity, we investigate production indicators of the Istrian cattle in the beef production. Average live weight of young bulls was 604 kg, older bulls 675 kg and cows 536 kg. Young bulls achieved average daily gain of 818 g/day and older bulls 638 g/day. Cold carcass weight in group of young bulls, older bulls and cows was 340.9 kg, 364.9 and 262.2 kg. Dressing percentages of young and older bulls were higher (56.2% ; 54.1%) than in the group of cows (49.50%). Based on this research we conclude that Istrian cattle have a favorable potential for beef production, especially in the technology of low to moderate intensity level.
