Abstract

High muscle glycogen pre-slaughter is synonymous with low stress and premium quality meat. Hyperammonaemia increases catecholamines and reduces insulin, leading to hyperglycaemia and reduced peripheral glucose uptake. This experiment examines the effect of diets differing in rumen degradable nitrogen on muscle glycogen conc. in cattle following commercial slaughter.
