Bienestar animal durante el transporte y su relación con la calidad de la carne bovina

Marlyn Romero P, Jorge Sánchez V

Resumen


RESUMEN

El bienestar animal (BA) es un elemento diferenciador en la comercialización de la carne bovina a nivel internacional, aunque no forma parte de los acuerdos comerciales, se pueden citar ejemplos de las experiencias de Chile, Argentina, Brasil y Uruguay con la Unión Europea, que los ha privilegiado para la exportación de carne fresca bovina con este valor agregado. Durante el transporte, cargue y descargue los bovinos son sometidos a factores estresantes que afectan su bienestar y la calidad de la carne, además de producir importantes pérdidas económicas a los productores. Este trabajo presenta una revisión sobre el bienestar animal durante el transporte, y su relación con la calidad de la carne bovina.
