Investigating Breast Muscle Myopathies

We collaborated with Drs. Shai Barbut and Leonardo Susta at the University of Guelph and with our genetics supplier to further investigate the epidemiology and consequences of breast muscle myopathies in broilers. Breast muscle myopathies result in poor meat textural qualities. By working with the University of Guelph team we were able to better understand conditions leading to breast muscle myopathies and actions that can be taken to reduce their incidence.
