...studies such as this illustrate how quality testing occurs in the experimental sciences and then returned to pre-slaughter actors in the process to change or improve best practice in the industry. Australian researchers have the opportunity to replicate these studies to measure reliability or compare to similar studies to create new feeding procedures that lead to known quality outputs. Similarly to the aforementioned study, feed is often tested to determine potential quality of beef and lamb which is considered a critical dimension in meat fattiness and marbling, tenderness, colour and flavour. A study was conducted involving the potential use of glycerol to improve... ? The Determinants of Meat Quality ...
