Muscle Development of Livestock Animals Physiology Genetics, and Meat Quality

Muscle Development of Livestock Animals Physiology, Genetics and Meat Quality PDF

By Marinus te Pas, Henk Haagsman andMaria Everts

Muscle Development of Livestock Animals Physiology, Genetics and Meat Quality PDF. Well-developed and functional muscle tissues are a prerequisite for healthy meat-producing animals. Good muscle development leads to improved meat quality. Hence modern breeds of livestock animal have been selectively bred for better conformation, increased muscle size and increased muscle-to-bone ratio. Muscle Development of Livestock Animals Physiology, Genetics and Meat Quality PDF describes all aspects of muscle development research, and contains contributions from leading research groups around the world.
