Meat production in Manchega breed lambs: III. Carcass composition and tissue distribution in the joints



Meat production in Manchega breed lambs: III. Carcass composition and tissue distribution in the joints



Investigacion Agraria Produccion y Sanidad Animales 9(1): 57-70



A study on carcass quality is undertaken in Manchega lambs. Three commercial types (8, 11 and 16 kg CCW) are assessed for body composition. Carcasses of 11 kg (CCW) have a lesser degree of fatness (13.37 p. 100) than carcasses of 8 and 16 kg (17.04 and 19.35 p. 100, respectively). Muscle and bone percentages in carcasses are 59.4 and 20.6 p. 100, 61.9 and 21.4 p. 100 and 57.7 and 19.4 p. 100 (8, 11 and 16 kg CCW). Tissue composition in joints follows the trends found in the whole carcass composition. Fat amount in joints is greater in carcasses of 16 kg. Carcasses of 11 kg have a greater percentage of muscle, especially in the leg, loin, best end neck, shoulder, and neck.
