Meat quality of bison (Bison bison bison) Longissimus thoracis et lumborum following very fast chillingDownload
Very fast chilling (VFC; internal muscle temperature of -1°C by 5 h postmortem) was achieved in the longissimus lumborum (LL), but not in the semimembranosus, of lean bison carcasses after only 4 or 6 h of chilling at -35°C. Rigorous chilling caused a shift in moisture loss from carcass cooler...
Twenty-four Hereford crossbred heifers weighing 222 kg (22 kg SD) and aged 226 d (13 d SD) on day 0 were used to investigate the effects of feed restriction (period 1) followed by realimentation (period 2) on hepatic and longissimus muscle glycogen metabolites and meat quality. The heifers were...
Three groups of once-calved (OCH) heifers were slaughtered following the weaning of their calves at 3 (OCH3, n = 32), 5 (OCH5, n = 33) and 7 (OCH7, n = 31) months postcalving. A fourth group of heifers was fed a silage/grain diet and slaughtered at 15 mo of age (C, n = 32). Alternate sides of...
A fully functional grading or classification system must allow trading in carcasses and meat to be conducted without the buyer needing to inspect the product personally. To achieve this, the system must accurately indicate the quantity of meat, the intrinsic quality of the meat, and any aspects...
The cooking and eating quality characteristics of rib-eye roasts obtained from cows after removal from the breeding herd and after 8 or 16 wk of realimentation were determined. Evaluations of the effects of maturity class (physiological age) and external fatness on meat quality were also made....
