Relationships between time of stunning and time of throat cutting and their effect on blood pressure and blood splash in lambs



Relationships between time of stunning and time of throat cutting and their effect on blood pressure and blood splash in lambs



Meat Science 2(3): 199-206



In 84 electrically stunned lambs, those gash stuck (transverse incision of the extended neck which almost simultaneously severs the trachea, oesophagus, common carotid arteries and jugular veins and the spinal cord at the occipito-atlantal junction) immediately after removal of the electrical applicator had a lower incidence of blood splash than lambs gash stuck 5-8 seconds after stunning.
