The relationships between meat tenderness and the changes in metabolism and body composition associated with compensatory growth in cattle were examined. Thirty-six steers were randomly allotted to 12 pens of three with three diets assigned randomly to the pens. Diets were alfalfa/grass silage,...
Meat tenderness may be improved by accelerating muscle metabolism or by damaging muscle structure and increasing the solubility of muscle proteins. Pre- and postrigor protein and collagen solubilities were measured in semitendinosus muscles, removed pre-rigor from 24 Charolais crossbred steer...
Interactive effects of low voltage electrical stimulation and leg restraint on meat quality of Charolais crossbred steer carcassesDownload
The meat quality of the longissimus muscle of 12 Charolais crossbred steers that were electrically stimulated on randomly selected sides approximately 1 h postmortem was investigated. Temperature and pH measurements were taken on each side at 5 min prior and 1, 4, 24 and 48 h subsequent to...
