Broiler rearing systems a review of major fattening results and meat quality traits



Broiler rearing systems a review of major fattening results and meat quality traits



World's Poultry Science Journal 68(2): 217-228



Poultry rearing systems have been the focus of scientific research for many years as a result of consumer demand for high-quality products and legal poultry welfare requirements. Given these requirements, the following study was carried out as a comparative review of the results obtained by different authors on the effect of rearing systems on productive traits (growth, feed conversion and mortality) and meat quality traits (dressing percentage, yield and percentage of primal cuts, and chemical composition of meat) in broilers.
