Effect of fasting and transportation on various physiological parameters and meat quality of slaughter hogs



Effect of fasting and transportation on various physiological parameters and meat quality of slaughter hogs



Journal of Animal Science 67(2): 334-341



A total of 49 pigs for slaughter were transported and fasted or fasted with no transport for 0 (no transport), 24, 48 and 72 h. Blood samples were taken before treatments and prior to slaughter. Fasting and transportation decreased plasma triiodothyronine and haematocrit and increased plasma osmolality. Preslaughter treatment did not affect juiciness or palatability of cooked loin chops or percentage of fat in the ham soft tissues.
