Dietary supplementation of livestock with vitamin E results in improved quality of meat subsequently obtained from these animals. The effect is especially noteworthy in cattle, in which the primary effects are delayed discoloration and lipid oxidation. A threshold level of alpha-tocopherol in muscle ensures a detectable effect; dietary strategies for(More)
Short durations in a range of standard durations are typically overreproduced and long durations underreproduced ('Vierordt's Law'). This contextual distortion may result from each trial assimilating the central tendency of the preceding series. We examine whether responses as well as standard durations contribute to this distortion. Two experiments using(More)
