The changes over time in plasma parameters and nitrogen metabolism were studied in finishing Belgian Blue double-muscled females offered a maize silage based diet. When compared with literature data, plasma glucose along with triglycerides concentrations was low while non-esterifled fatty acids were high and rich in polyunsaturated forms. The concentrations in thyroid hormones, insulin-like growth factor 1 and insulin were also low and plasma insulin decreased with time. Growth hormone concentration, by contrast, increased with time. On average, the females retained 44 g nitrogen per day from an intake of 210 g but the efficiency of retention decreased with time. The fractional rates of accretion and synthesis of muscle protein were also affected by time. The dry matter content in muscle biopsies was close to 22% and increased with the finishing, as did the diameter of the tailhead adipocytes. [less ▲]

In the European Union, half of slaughtered adult cattle are female, including 60 % of adult cows and 40 % of heifers, mainly from dairy races. The animals are culled for multiple reasons that vary from one country to another and even from one herd to another. Fattening is therefore more difficult and haphazard than that of young bulls, due to the heterogeneity of their characteristics at the culling time, such as: age, race and format, medical and physiological statutes, and body condition score. The methods of finishing (outside or inside) and of feeding are also significant sources of variation. This article proposes to review the principal factors influencing the finishing of culled females. [less ▲]

Fatty acids are member of the lipid family. They are aliphatic monocarboxylic acids with or without double bond. They are classified according different nomenclatures : the international systematic name, the omega nomenclature and the trivial names. Fatty acids are major compounds of oils and fats. Among the saturated fatty acids, C12, C16 and C18 fatty acids are the most widely distributed, whereas in the unsaturated fatty acids group, C18 with 1, 2 or 3 double bonds are the most important within the vegetable and animal terrestrian products. Fatty acids with 4 or more than 4 double bonds and 20 to 24 atoms of carbon are largely represented in the marine products. [less ▲]
