Effects of slaughter weight and sex on carcass traits and meat quality of Casertana pigs reared outdoors



Effects of slaughter weight and sex on carcass traits and meat quality of Casertana pigs reared outdoors



Italian Journal of Animal Science 6(Suppl. 1): 698-700



The effects of different slaughter weights (W) and sex (S) on carcass traits and longissimus dorsi meat quality (pH, WHC, colour, cholesterol and collagen) of Casertana pigs were studied. Thirty-six pure breed Casertana pigs, 24 barrows (B) and 12 gilts (G), were evaluated in a 2x2 factorial design involving different slaughter live weights (L, 125.6 kg; H, 152.5 kg) and S (B and G).
