The objective was to determine pre-slaughter factors which may enhance the
eating quality of beef and to assist the Irish beef production chain to exploit
these factors to produce beef of higher quality and increased consumer
acceptability. The effects of pre-slaughter growth rate, high energy diets, feed
type and age at slaughter on beef quality were examined.
