Maturity

Maturity or ossification is a measure of the physiological maturity of a carcase, that is, the process of cartilage turning to bone in the vertebrae. The amount of bone development determines the ossification score.

Ossification is used in place of dentition in MSA grading, as it is a more accurate predictor of eating quality.
