Abstract
An experiment was conducted to find out the effect of crossing rams from the Texel breed with Corriedale and mating it with an ideal ewe on meat quality. 23 male lambs (12 Texel x Ideal ewe and 11 Texel x Corriedale) were evaluated in this study. The animals were raised in Rio Grande do Sul State, Brazil. On the 180th day the animals were slaughtered and results showed no significant difference in initial pH, water holding capacity, color, and hardness of muscles for the Ideal and Corriedale crossbreeding.
