Effect of genotype, feeding system and slaughter weight on the quality of light lambs. II. Fatty acid composition of meat



Effect of genotype, feeding system and slaughter weight on the quality of light lambs. II. Fatty acid composition of meat



Livestock Production Science 77(2/3): 187-194



108 Merino Branco and crossbred Ile de France x Merino Branco ram lambs were used to evaluate the effects of genotype, feeding system and slaughter weight on fatty acid composition of meat (longissimus thoracis muscle). At 60 days of age, lambs were assigned to the experimental feeding systems: P - pasture with dams; SP - pasture with dams, plus concentrate ad libitum; C - weaning and concentrate ad libitum. Lambs were slaughtered at 24 and 30 kg liveweight.
