Abstract

This study aimed to investigate the effect of palmitic acid, added in the diets of finishing male sheep, affecting productive variables, carcass quality and meat. A total of 21 male sheep, cross of the Dorper and Pelibuey breeds, were used and divided into three treatments: control (CON), comprising sheep fed with the base diet; PA3 treatment, in which the diet included 3% palmitic acid; and PA6 treatment, in which the diet included 6% palmitic acid. The addition of 3% palmitic acid in the diet improved productive variables, carcass quality, and modified the antioxidant capacity without affecting the physicochemical characteristics of the meat.
