The fattening unrolledduring two consecutive years, and included three successive phases: accommodation (15 days) – 16%CP, growing-fattening (65 days) – 15% CP, respectively finishing (20 days) – 13% CP. At the end offattening period, the appreciation of carcasses and meat quality has been done (n=5), using subjectiveand objective methods: the carcass estimation using EUROP system, the analysis of slaughter yield,muscular fiber diameter and chemical composition of meat.
