Article history: Received 1 September 2007 Received in revised form 4 May 2008 Accepted 28 May 2008 Twenty-four crossbred (Duroc×Large White×Yorkshire) finishing pigs (halothane-negative, mean liveweight of 90 kg) were used to determine the effects of supplementing swine finishing diets with magnesium aspartate (MgAsp) and short-duration transportation stress on blood parameters, pork quality and μ-calpain and calpastatin mRNA levels in muscle of pigs. Transportation increased serum… CONTINUE READING
