The Effects of Strain and Caponisation on Carcass and Meat Traits of Cockerels Aged Twenty Weeks
Annals of Animal Science
The analysis of slaughter yield and meat quality was performed on a total number of 96 birds from four medium-heavy weight pedigree strains. Based on their strain, cockerels were divided into the following groups: group I - strain N88 (originating from New Hampshire), group II - strain R55 (Rhode Island Red), group III - strain S11 (Sussex) and group IV - strain P55 (Plymouth Rock). Each group consisted of 24 birds. At 12 weeks of age, half of the cockerels from each group was caponised. Indoi:10.1515/aoas-2016-0049 fatcat:hbu25tbzljdgzpdloct2avr3g4
