Trial II (Restricted feeding): At the end of the grower period, addition of the additives with restricted feeding did not affect the carcass yield and the relative weight of internal organs, except a significant increase (p<0.05) in the liver, gizzard and proventriculus, heart, small intestine, and the two ceca (except the probiotic).
Carcass yield reduced linearly (p<0.067) as SC levels increased; considering the Dunnett's test, the birds fed 20% of SC showed lower carcass yield than birds on the control diet.
Several studies have shown that Lys affected positively broilers' carcass yield (ABUDADOS; ALJUMAAH, 2010; CORZO et al., 2006; DOZIER III et al., 2008;), mainly breast yield, due to the fact that the concentration of the amino-acid lies in the Pectoralis major and Pectoralis menor muscles (MUNKS et al., 1945).
After scalding, 18 carcasses/treatment/block (n = 270) were collected and the carcasses were reweighted after evisceration to determine the eviscerated carcass yield.
Therefore, the average finished weight and carcass yield of tropical cattle breeds are low according to previous reports (Nega et al., 2003; Shirima et al., 2016).
The aim of this study was to quantify the effect of two concentrations and technological forms of flaxseed supplementation on growth performance, carcass yield and meat quality of rabbits.
The judges will be looking for creative new ideas and the finalists will be scored for their cutting technique, added value, display techniques, HACCP (hazard analysis and critical control points) and personal hygiene, and maximum carcass yield.
Studies related with the use of vitamin [D.sub.3] metabolites can help companies with integration systems, which would handle mineral and vitamin supplements, to reduce the amount of vitamin [D.sub.3] by association with active metabolites; and therefore, enable cost reduction without loss on performance, carcass yield and bone quality of the flocks of chickens.
The carcasses were weighed to determine the carcass yield. A laboratory sample made by two fillets from each fish was ground twice in a meat mincer with a disc of a 2 mm mesh diameter.
The low weight at slaughter was possibly the main cause of low carcass yield (73.5-74.9 %) when compared to the results obtained in previous work in rustic pig breeds (such as Chato Murciano with 77.7%, [32];Iberian pigs with 76.9-77.9%, [8]; Celtic pigs with 79.0%, [14].
