About The Book. Outlining the core principles of the subject, this introductory-level textbook covers the production of meat, its structure and chemical composition, meat quality and hygiene, and animal welfare, handling and slaughter. Generally, four-legged animals use their shoulder and leg muscles the most; therefore, the cuts from these areas contain more connective tissues and are less tender. The back, rib, and loin sections contain muscles that are used less frequently, and they tend to be the source of the more tender, or choicer, cuts of meat.

The Science of Animal Growth and Meat Technology, Second Edition, combines fundamental science- based and applied, practical concepts relating to the prenatal and postnatal growth of cattle, sheep and provides the necessary components to understand the production and growth of livestock for safe and quality meat products and presents an understanding of the principles of meat science. Composition and Structure of Meat Meat is the flesh of an animal used for food according to “the little oxford dictionary”.The connective tissue cells are joined together into bundles by two types of connective and yellow connective tissue, the white connective tissues are called collagen, is found in all the muscles of the.
