Effects of porcine somatotropin (PST) administration on the fat/lean content and processing properties of pork bellies.

Abstract

Porcine somatotropin (PST)-supplemented pigs were slaughtered at 109 or 131·8 kg; bellies were analyzed for compositional and bacon processing characteristics and compared with bellies from controls (slaughtered at 109 kg). Bellies from control and 109 kg, PST-treated pigs were significantly lighter (P < 0·01) in weight whereas the PST-treated bellies were… (More)
