Abstract

A survey was carried out in three Tuscan slaughtering plants with the aim to collect data and more information about sheep and goats electrical stunning, with particular reference to type of equipments, current and time characteristics, positioning of the electrodes, level of induced narcosis and incidence of related pathologies. Although the equipments checked were similar and the narcosis conditions appeared satisfying, electrical parameters applied showed actual values distant from recommended standards. Results call official veterinary and owners of plants to pay more attention on this step of slaughtering process, but show also the shortage of control tools. With regard to this, the Authors focused particular attention on the most important factors involved both in the evaluation process of the electrical stunning efficacy in sheep.
