Effects of fasting and transportation on pork quality development and extent of postmortem metabolism1
Journal of Animal Science
One hundred seventy-seven pigs were used to determine the interaction effects of fasting and length of transport prior to harvest on pork muscle quality. The study design was a 2 × 2 × 3 factorial, which involved two genetic sources, fasting (F) or no fasting (N) of pigs 48-h prior to harvest, and three transport times (0.5, 2.5, or 8.0 h) on a semitrailer to the packing plant. Genetic source was a significant source of variation (P < 0.05) for most composition and muscle quality variables.doi:10.2527/2002.80123194x pmid:12542160 fatcat:hbxnrxdcofhpjowjavubjagbra
