Relationship of thyroid activity to distribution of fat in rabbit carcasses



Relationship of thyroid activity to distribution of fat in rabbit carcasses



Journal of Food Science 43(5): 1397-1399



Intramuscular injections of thyroxine (T4), 50 mu g every 12 h for 2 weeks, produced lean rabbits with adequate intramuscular fat but weight gains decreased. Implantation of a tablet of Synovex containing 12.5 mg progesterone and 1.25 mg oestradiol 7 weeks before the injection tended to stimulate growth and counteract the effect of T4 on weight gain.
