The Preto Alentejano is a local non improved swine breed which survived during the las! years owing to a demand increasing ofIberian products and the protection of nrigin designation products. Commercial pig breeds have great prolificacy and precocity, raised purely OD an intensive way, using a more advanced technology that translates into a possible improvement in tenns af carcass yield. Sixteen animals were used, 4 females and 4 males from each breed. Animals had 80-100 kg of tive weight. The longissimus muscle between the 5th thoracic vertebm aod the 10th lumbar vertebra was used in the aoalysis. Regarding meat physical-cbcmical quality, samples wcrc aoalyzed fnr protein, fat, pigments, ashes, dried materials, water-holding capacity, and texture. Results of fat and pigments contents indicate significaot differences for ali treatments.
