The effects of two fattening systems on muscle composition and fatty acid profile were determined in an experiment using samples of the longissimus dorsi (LD) muscle of 24 ram lambs (slaughter weight 29-31kg). The fattening systems were: (i) drylot (a mixture of maize, soybean, wheat and minerals) and (ii) grazing (Cynodon dactylon). The lambs fattened in the drylot system presented higher fat levels (p<0.01), but lower concentrations of moisture (p<0.01) and cholesterol (p<0.05). The lipid… CONTINUE READING
