Short summary
The results of this study indicate that the feeding system (concentrate vs. pasture) affected meat quality and fatty acid composition in lambs. Both rearing systems have advantages and disadvantages. Feeding with concentrate rations led to a better fattening performance and meat quality, whereas omega-3 content was high in pasture-reared lambs. Further research is necessary to explore the optimum combination of these feeding systems.
