This project was undertaken to test the eating quality of three cuts: striploin, eye round and topside aged for four times; 7, 28, 49 and 70 days from entire and castrated male Bos indicus cattle that were either homozygous positive or homozygous negative for the calpastatin gene. The clipped data for the MSA sensory attributes of tenderness, juiciness, like of flavour, overall likeability, satisfaction and MQ4 scores demonstrated that consumers could not detect a difference between entire and castrated treatments in the eating quality of the striploin, eye round and topside cuts used in this study. Consumers could detect differences in eating quality between homozygous positive and homozygous negative calpastatin genotypes from Bos indicus male cattle. Consumers could detect differences due to the amount of time beef cuts were aged. Ageing beef cuts increased the clipped scores for tenderness, juiciness, like of flavour, overall likeability, and MQ4 and satisfaction sensory scores.
