Fatty acid profile of hind leg muscle in female and male nutria (Myocastor coypus Mol.), fed green forage diet


Glogowski, R; Czauderna, M; Rozbicka, A; Krajewska, K A; Clauss, Marcus (2010). Fatty acid profile of hind leg muscle in female and male nutria (Myocastor coypus Mol.), fed green forage diet. Meat Science, 85(3):577-579.

Abstract

The study describes the profile of fatty acids in hind leg muscle of 18 female and 12 male nutria reared on
an extensive system farm in eastern Poland with a diet based on fresh forage. When compared to results from nutrias from an intensive production system from the literature, the forage-fed animals had lower proportions of saturated fatty acids, and higher proportions of n3-fatty acids in their muscle tissue; in particular, n6:n3-fatty acid ratios were lower (2.6–3.0) in forage-fed animals compared to intensively reared animals (16.8–28.9). These findings underline that using forage-based diets is feasible in nutrias, and an economic way to improve the fatty acid composition of their meat.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
