Citação: Rodrigues, Sandra; Lourenço, Maria Céu; Pereira, Etelvina; Teixeira, Alfredo (2010) - Breed and sex effect on pork meat quality. In Book of Abstratcs of the 61st Annual Meeting of the European Association for Animal Production. Heraklion
Resumo: Pork is one of the most traditional meats consumed by Portuguese people. From the 800 thousand tonnes of meat and meat products produced in Portugal, pork represents about 43% of total value. Also the idea that pork is not indicated for hypo-caloric or low in cholesterol diets is something not real and has been decreasing. The Preto Alentejano is a local non improved swine breed which survived during the last years owing to a demand increasing of Iberian products and the protection of origin designation products. Commercial pig breeds have great prolificacy and precocity, raised purely on an intensive way, using a more advanced technology that translates into a possible improvement in terms of carcass yield.
