In order to minimize the high proportion of carcass and meat quality defects recorded in commercially slaughtered pigs, the optimum handling, stunning and bleeding-out conditions must be implemented.

A prototype beef-quality probe was tested on 47 strip-loin steaks evaluated by a sensory panel. The probe responded to the reflectance or back-scatter of initially polarized light from 400 to 800 nm, UV fluorescence of connective tissue, and electromechanical resistance to needle penetration. All...
Classical DNA fingerprinting is based on separation of DNA restriction fragments by electrophoresis and hybridisation to nucleic acid probes containing repetitive nucleotide sequences. The use of such mini- or micro-satellite probes tends to yield patterns specific to an individual rather than to...
