THE YIELD AND QUALITY OF MEAT AS THE FUNCTION OF WEIGHT AND SEX OF SLAUGHTERED BEAVERS

Abstract The tissue composition and chemical composition of most important elements (thigh, rump, tail) of slaughtered beavers was checked and analyzed as the function of their weight and sex. The highest amount of meat was found in a thigh. The beavers? meat contains approximately 20.5-22.1% of protein and 3.7-7.2% of fat. There was found no correlation between the weight and sex of slaughtered animals and the chemical composition of obtained meat. This meat is characterized by low content of collagen.
