The heifers were fattened by the same feed ration to the 450 days of age. There was a significant difference between the groups of the heifers (P ≤0.01) in the dressing percentage and muscle ratio (P ≤0.05). The Longissimus muscle chemical quality of fattening heifer were evaluate. Content of protein was similar in the Slovak pied heifers and in the crosses by limousine was insignificantly lower. Intramuscular fat content was significantly differed (P≤0.05), in the Slovak pied heifers was 2.95 % and the crosses by Limousine 3.52 %.Water holding capacity was insignificantly higher in the Slovak pied cattle as in the crosses by Limousine breed. Shear force was significantly (P ≤ 0.05) higher in the Longissimus muscle of Slovak pied cattle (7.1 WB) as in the crosses by Limousine breed (6.42 WB).
