The objective was to identify and evaluate economic losses due to carcass lesions, with different pre-slaughter cattle management, where 60 male Nelore no-castrated subdivided into treatments by management and transportation. The truck transport with rational management presented smaller injuries and better financial positioning when compared to the cart. Among the management, the rational excelled with minor injuries. The most incident site of injuries was in the rear and numerically considerable in the carriage truck. It is extremely important to rationalize the management throughout the process called pre-slaughter and choose the appropriate transport, minimizing losses due to carcass lesions, increasing economic viability.
