To address the use of zeranol implantations under common small-scale farming, pastured, practices, and the subsequent lamb and goat meat quality.


These data indicated that zeranol implants had no effect on all meat measurements of goat kids and Awassi lambs with exception of dry matter. Significantly an increase of drip loss and TBARS value of meat from both implanted and unimplanted animals were recorded during storage period. The amount of TBARS and cooking loss were found significantly higher in Awassi lambs than goat kids. Significant effect of animal species was detecting for cooking loss, which highest values observed in goat meat than lamb meat. Similarly, significant effect of animal species was observed on TBARS values which were highest in sheep meat.
