Beef carcasses are sorted in a grading system regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), Livestock and Seed Division (LSD). When officially graded, the grade of steer, heifer, cow, or bullock carcass consists of the yield grade and (or) quality grade.
