Influence of the rearing managements and carcass traits on the sensory properties of two muscles: Longissimus thoracis and rectus abdominis

Abstract : The aim of this study was to analyse simultaneously the effect of rearing managements (RM), carcass traits, muscle type (longissimus thoracis, LT and rectus abdominis, RA) and their interactions on colour (system L*a*b*), sensory and rheological properties of 77 heifers. The data used were 46 rearing factors defining four RM applied during the heifers' whole life from and 5 carcass traits discriminating two carcass quality clusters (Low and High quality). The results showed that the RM had an impact on the carcass and meat quality traits. The redness and the overall acceptability of LT meat were more sensitive to variation of RM than RA meat. The tenderness of LT and RA were similar or not according to the RM. Higher tenderness was obtained from high carcass quality irrespective the muscle. These results show that similar carcass and meat qualifies can be obtained with different RM. They also demonstrated that it is also possible to manage jointly carcass and meat qualifies.
