Trait abbreviations: IMF = intramuscular fat content, WHC = water holding capacity, measured as ‘drip loss’ in percent of muscle weight, ML = M. longissimus, MQ = M. quadriceps. Glucose = blood glucose level; Asterisks indicate the significance of correlations: *** p < 0.001, ** p < 0.01, * p < 0.05, .p < 0.10.
