Abstract

There were no differences in toughness, juiciness, intensity of flavour and incidence of taints between samples of meat from wether lambs and cattle which had been treated with oestrogens and similar meat samples from untreated controls. During feeding trials prior to slaughter both the cattle and sheep which had been given oestrogens gained in live-weight significantly faster than their respective controls.
