The aim of this study was to produce high-quality meat from lambs under different feeding conditions, as measured by the accumulation of n-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) in muscle and subcutaneous fat. In total, 13 male crossbred lambs (Black Head x Gotland), each at 24 kg live weight, were divided into two feeding groups. Lambs were kept either on pasture (pasture grazing, n = 6) or in the stable (concentrate feeding, n = 7). The linolenic acid (C18:3n-3) contained in the… CONTINUE READING
