This study was designed to observe the effects of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) supplementation on lean content of pork carcass primal cuts (hams, loins, and bellies) and to determine the ability of total body electrical conductivity (TOBEC) to predict lean content. A total of 64 crossbred growing-finishing barrows were placed on a control (soybean oil) or CLA (0.75%) diet at an average weight of 40 kg. Pigs were penned in pairs according to diet and stress genotype (negative, carrier, and… CONTINUE READING
