A 3x3 factorial experiment has been conducted to study the effects of different transport time (Short: 40 min vs. Medium: 3 h vs. Long: 5 h) and stocking densities (Low: 5 pigs per pen or 230 kg/m2, Medium: 6 pigs per pen or 275 kg/m2 and High: 7 pigs per pen or 325 kg/m2) on some blood constituents and meat quality of four hundred and thirty two pigs including seventy two pigs that had been DNA tested (genotype: NN).
