Productive and carcass classification traits on chemical and instrumental meat quality characteristics of ten local cattle breeds of the Southwest of Europe

  • C. Sañudo (a1), J.L. Olleta (a1), G. Renand (a2), M.M. Campo (a1), B. Panea (a1), M. Oliván (a3), D. García (a4), M.A. Oliver (a5), M. Espejo (a6) and J. Piedrafita (a7)...


The EU is the second largest world producer of beef meat, but production is fragmented, consisting of highly variable local systems, compared with homogenous, highly intensive feedlot systems. The current EU agricultural policy requires a reorientation of beef market to take advantage of this diversity by creating meat quality labels relating to geographical areas and with specific genotype and production systems, symbols of guaranteed quality. The aim of this experiment was to analyse the relationships between productive and carcass parameters with some meat quality traits, within breed-production systems in different European countries.
