Impact of grazing management on lamb meat quality

New LowInputBreeds Technical Note


In low-input farming systems, particularly in the Mediterranean area, reducing the exploitation of pastures is of interest to farmers. But limiting access to grazing may have a negative impact on the production performance and meat quality of ruminants. Research conducted within the LowInputBreeds project with lambs aimed at determining the impact of pasture management on quality and shelf life of meat, and on lamb performances.
