- ... Beef from cattle finished on grass will be of similar quality to that from cattle finished on grain when their carcasses are processed using best practice protocols. To test this hypothesis, carcasses of twenty Brahman steers, finished to 400 kg live weight on either Buffel grass pasture (n=10) or grain (n=10), were electrically stimulated with 400 V for 50 s 45 min postmortem, and their beef qual ...

- ... In the last 2 decades, consumer demand for fresher, higher quality, and safer food has promoted research on nonthermal methods of food preservation for the inactivation of microorganisms and enzymes as an alternative to thermal processes. However, the high resistance of certain enzymes and microorganisms to nonthermal processes, especially bacterial spores, limit their application. To expand the u ...

- ... Effects of prerigor conditioning treatments on processing time, quality characteristics and muscle properties were determined using three muscles from each of 84 lamb carcasses. Carcasses (n = 72) were subjected, beginning 1 hr post‐exsanguination, to one of six conditioning treatments and compared to normally chilled lambs (n = 12). Treatments differed in conditioning period, conditioning chamber ...
